We conduct research in the cutting edge area of bio-inspired nanomaterials and devices. Although we do realize the importance of  research platform, we still believe in and appreciate the strength of people. In some sense we are fortunate to have a number of highly self-motivated students with very diverse backgrounds. Very excitingly, each of them is using his/her passion for innovation to spark new knowledge, and contributing to the lab in his/her own unique way.
