The primary interests of our lab are design and synthesis of biomaterials, and exploring their biomedical applications. The long-term goals of our research are to develop cancer targeted nano-sized drug carrier to eradicate cancer and to design novel drug formulation to alleviate central nervous system (CNS) diseases. Currently, our foci are rational design, and synthesis of environment responsive polymers, and fabricating them into cancer or CNS targeted nanoparticle for chemotherapy or gene therapy.
