    Research Interest:
    We are interested in understanding and controlling biological interactions of polymers with cells at the nano-scale. The fundamental understanding will lead us to more translational cancer research fields including: i) Targeted drug delivery with enhanced targeting efficacy using newly designed nanocarriers; ii) Local, transdermal delivery of drugs such as chemo-preventive medicine; and iii) Biomimetic multifunctional devices for effective detection and isolation of rare cells such as circulating tumor cells (CTCs).
