LEONG LAB

Nanotherapeutics and Stem Cell Engineering Lab
We focus on understanding and exploiting the interactions of cells with nanostructures for therapeutic applications. Discrete nanostructures in the form of multi-functional nanoparticles are applied to deliver drugs, antigen, protein, siRNA, and DNA to cells for drug, gene, and immunotherapy. Continuous nanostructures in the form of electrospun nanofiber and imprinted nanopattern are applied to influence cellular behavior, particularly human embryonic and adult stem cells.
