Can we create a world of living microbe carriers that have the characteristics of self-replication, self-regulation, self-navigation, self-responsiveness and self-sustainability? Engineered Living microbe as drug delivery materials is our goal to treat human disease. The proposed Big Idea would push the boundaries and frontiers of synthetic biology, drug delivery, materials engineering, nanotechnology into new realms.
Our lab mainly focuses on engineering intelligent or responsive microbe for regulating immune system or cell regeneration. Besides we also mimic the self-assembly process of nature protein aggregate to prepare drug loaded nanoparticles for precise delivery.
