The vision of the Xu group is to use nanoscale materials and advantage techniques to address important medical and dental problems.

Research Focus

Nanomaterials possess unique physical, chemical and biological properties due to the nanosize effects and offer various advantages for biomedical applications. Our research interest includes two parts: fundamental research about nanomaterials and nano-bio interactions, and translational medical/dental applications. Specifically, our research includes the design and synthesis of functional nanomaterials, revealing their interaction with biological systems, and explores their biomedical applications including drug delivery, gene therapy, bone and dental tissue regeneration.
