Research Interests

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.
