Y Cui - Research

We intend to develop new paradigms in bionanotechnology to create revolutionary opportunities for scientific and technological progression. Our research in bionanotechnology encompasses tailored solutions from across the biotechnology and nanotechnology spectrums, which intricately combines biological recognition, nanofabrication/nanoassembly, micro/nanofluidics, materials characterization and electrical measurements. Our goal includes a synthetic design of bionanomaterials, fabricating the bionanomaterials into bionanostructures, the hierarchical assembly of bionanostructures into functional bionanodevices, and applying these devices in medical diagnosis, defense, environmental monitoring, and energy storage.
