Research Description

Department of Materials Science and Engineering[/url]

The major research interest in the Cheng Research Group is centered on developing functional molecular, polymeric and nano-materials and exploring their applications.  We are specifically interested in the following areas:

(1) Polymer biomaterials, in particular functional polypeptides and polyesters

(2) Polymer and materials chemistry

(3) Nanomedicines for drug/gene delivery, imaging and diagnosis

(4) Controlled release systems: design and application

(5) Functional materials, smart materials and molecular probes
