Our work spans from cellular and molecular engineering and electrochemistry to bio-inspired synthetic materials that are targeted toward designing analytical reagents and biosensors with recognition and signal transduction capabilities.
(1) Electrical biosensing of foodborne pathogenic bacteria down to 10 cells/mL.
(2) E-cigarettes smoke likely to cause DNA-damage!
(3) Quantum dot decorated whole-bacterial cells as fluorescent reporters to probe cellular damages.
(4) Aptamers as biorecognition elements for cancer detection.
(5) Microbial catalysis of engineered nanomaterials.
