Research Synopsis

My research mainly focuses on applying nanotechnology for biomedical uses, including tissue engineering and nanomedicine. Within tissue engineering, we have pioneered the use of nature-derived nanostructured tissue, e.g. decellularized tendon, as a source of biomaterials and works to engineer these materials via a combination of tissue sectioning, multilayer stacking and rolling into constructs with innovative biomedical functions. Within nanomedicine, his group is working on developing novel lipid-based nanoparticles to deliver various biomacromolecules for therapeutic applications, including enzyme replacement therapy and cancers.
