Micro/nano-devices for Biomedical Applications
Micro/nano system technology have greatly facilitate the development of bioinformatics research. In the field of bioelectronics and bioinformatics, researches have been greatly attracted by biological system modeling and disease predictions based on the understanding of intracellular protein dynamic expression. We have been focusing on the fundamental research on micro/nano-system for biomedical applications, trying to address the key issues on three levels, from the outside to the inside, in vitro – transdermal – and in vivo, aiming to overcome the key challenge of how to develop bio-safe technology to detect and regulate biological disease: 1) On the in vitro cellular level, we made breakthrough process on the development of nano-devices that could safely penetrate cell membrane, achieving regulation and sensing of the intracellular contents dynamically. 2) On the transdermal level, we systematically developed transdermal theranostic system, achieving precise and in situ detection and therapy of diseases. 3) On the in vivo level, we creatively develop bio-safe implantable theranostic system, achieving safe regulation and sensing of diseases in vivo. Our work holds great promise on facilitating the development of new tools for biomedical sensing detection and biomedical therapy, which would be critically important for the field of bioelectronics.
