Research Interests

My primary research interest is in the construction of autonomous therapeutic and diagnostic molecular devices based on nucleic acids.



Research Activities

We have five related projects in our laboratory: (1) decision-making by molecules in solution; (2) development of molecular sensors; (3) recognition-triggered drug release; (4) movement of catalytic nanoassemblies on recognition surfaces; (5) development of the oligonucleotide-based zip codes for tissue-specific delivery.
