    • Research Topic
      • Cell Membrane Mimic Bio-chips
        Our research interest is to develop cell membrane mimic platforms to understand the underlying mechanisms of membrane related cellular processes for novel therapeutic applications. Cell membranes are the gateway for cells to send and receive signals and for pathogen infection. Membrane proteins are the primary drug targets; however, they are difficult to study, since their structures, functions, and activities are highly sensitive to their lipid membrane environments. Cell membrane mimic platforms allow these proteins to be studied in their native environments.
      • Phase Transformation and Transport Phenomena in Lipid Membranes
        The phase dynamics and species transport in lipid membranes has been suggested to influence many cellular processes. Incorporating microfluidic and microfabriaction techniques, we can have control over lipid membrane’s pre-determined constituents, the spatial organization of membranes and proteins, and when different biomolecules interact with each other. The spatio-temporal control, which is difficult to achieve in conventional methods, allows us to obtain fundamental understanding of biomembrane related cellular processes and to discover new biophysical phenomena.


    • Recent Research Topic
      Current research programs include:
      • Studying phase transformation phenomena in bio-membranes
      • Exploring physical pathway for potential therapeutic applications of phospholipase related disease
      • Liposome based drug delivery application
      • Bio-interface engineering for studying peripheral protein-lipid membrane interactions
        Use microfluidic and microfabrication techniques to develop composite membranes to study how the membrane catalyzes membrane protein structure changes
        High throughput screening of environmental conditions in microfluidic devices
