Exploiting Nanomaterials for Interrogating Cellular Functions
We employ nanotechnology to understand and engineer cell functions. We design novel nanomaterials, use them to elucidate interactions at the nano-bio interface, and then translate the fundamental knowledge into developing new therapeutic materials.
Immune cells engulf Janus particles.
Single-molecule imaging of T cell receptors (red) and actin (green) in the immunological synapse.
A bifunctional Janus particle activates a T cell.
We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow with a background in one or more areas in cell biophysics, membrane biophysics, super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, nano-bio interactions, or immunology. Please send your CV, including names of two or three references, to Prof. Yan Yu at email@example.com. For more details of the opening, please download this PDF.
