My research is mainly focused on the development of nanoparticle systems having controllable mechanical properties (stiffness, Young’s moduli) and the investigation on how nanoparticle’s mechanical properties affects the interactions at the bio-nano interface. I also have intensive experience in soft matters (hydrogels), flexible electronics, and additive manufacturing (3D printing). My current project aims to develop nano- and microparticle-based artificial antigen presenting cells (aAPCs), and to elucidate the influence of nano- and microparticle’s mechanical properties on T cell activation for cancer cell therapy.
