4. Dynamic control of nanostructured materials

We utilize various nanostructured materials, such as (A) tuning nanoscale anisotropy in bioactive ligand presentation to dynamically control cell recruitment and function.

We are interested in designing uniquely nanostructured dynamic materials for (B) diverse biomedical applications, such as (C) drug delivery-based stem cell engineering and tissue regeneration.
