::Research Area::

The Feng group is focused broadly on science and technology at the chemistry, biology and nanotechnology. We are interest to explore fundamental researches and applications of advance material and nanobiology at molecule and cell level, using the techniques of chemistry, biology and nanotechnology.

We are committed to realizing this intellectual vision through studies currently focused on two major areas:

(1) Advance Materials-Design and synthesis of novel soft-materials, non-virus gene delivery carrier, Bioactive materials et al. Research on the relations between their structure and function.

(2) Nanobiology--We are investigating on the structure of DNA, the interaction of DNA-protein as well as their biological functions, and also to explore structures and functions of Biomacromolecules and cells. Using microfabrication is a fundamental goal of biotechnology, such as adhesion of proteins and cells and the differentiation of cells on the solid-liquid interface, with applications ranging from basic science to clinical medicine.

This research by definition is highly interdisciplinary. We are utilized and develop concepts and techniques from chemistry, physics, biology, and the engineering sciences to achieve our goals.
