The research in our lab focuses on applying the biological concepts to the synthetic and hybrid macromolecules, for development of new functional materials with desired collective properties. Current projects include:
(1) Material Properties of Synthetic Polyamino Acids with Different Macromolecular Designs,
(2) Cooperative Polymerization Mechanisms in Covalent and Non-covalent Systems,
(3) Highly Functional Protein-Polymer and Nanoparticle-Polymer Hybrid Materials.
