Honours and Awards
Shenzhen Peacock Award, Shenzhen Municipality China
•Composite, hybrid intelligent materials based on bio-macromolecules: Our project focuses on the development of novel nucleic acid nano-biotechnology. Compared with synthetic polymers, nucleic acids exhibit many unique properties, including its biological function, biocompatibility, and molecular recognition capacity. We engage in developing DNA composite/hybrid materials, which will have interesting applications in biosensors and biomedicines.
•Chemical and bio-sensing applications of organic optoelectronic materials: To achieve ultrasensitive detection of small molecules or biomarkers, we develop new optoelectronic material systems by designing and adjusting their intermolecular forces.
•Developing new strategies of signal amplifications for the highly sensitive detection of cancer markers.
