Gang-yu Liu Ph.D.
Research Interests: Nanoscience and nanoengineering, bioanalytical chemistry, polyvalent biochemical interactionsOur overall research objective focuses on the development of nanotechnology and the application of nanotechnology in bioanalytical chemistry. One important aspect of the research is the designing and engineering nanostructures which position bioreceptors and chemical reaction sites on surfaces with high precision. The exquisite precision attainable by the nanolithographic methods that we have developed allows complex multivalent interactions typical of biorecognition to be controlled, by varying the separation and local environment of the binding sites. Students in the group acquire interdisciplinary training in start-of-the-art nanotechnology and are exposed to the forefront of nanoscience.
