The main focus of our research is engineering the interface between biomaterials and tissues/cells to solve important biomedical problems.

Examples of the ongoing research projects are:

1. Multi-functional surface chemistry for medical implants

2. Bioadhesive and surface chemistry for tissue-implant integration

3. Immunomodulation of tissue engineering scaffolds

4. Surface chemistry for neural stem cell differentiation

5. A novel formulations for wound healing

6. Hydrogels for controlled release of protein drugs

7. Contact lens to treat corneal melting
