Biomedical Engineering

Overview

Principal Investigator: Dr. Weiping Wang

The research on biomedical engineering in the Research Centre is based on the integration of cutting edge technologies including molecular design and assembly, photochemistry, nanotechnology and genome editing. Our aim is to advance research in disease treatment, regenerative medicine and stem cell biology. Currently the key research topics are focused on (i) engineering stimuli-responsive nanomaterials for targeted drug delivery; (ii) ocular drug delivery; (iii) engineering genetic systems (CRISPR/Cas9) in stem cells or for disease treatment; and (iv) regulating autophagy for Alzheimer’s treatment.
