Programmable Biomaterials Laboratory
Designing materials with spatially controlled molecular interactions between cells and soft matter.
We explore how precise spatial organization of molecules can control multivalent binding between soft-matter and cells.
Research in our lab aims to develop nanomaterials that show unique and programmable inter- and intramolecular binding affinity profiles.

Those who are inspired by a model other than Nature, a mistress above all masters, are laboring in vain.
