We have expertise in electrochemistry, optics, nanomaterials synthesis and surface modification with a strong focus on interfacing materials with biological systems.
We specialise in nanoscale control over materials either by highly controlled synthesis or via the molecule level modification of surfaces using self-assembled monolayers, biological molecules and nanomaterials to impart a desired functionality to that surface such as to:
- Selectively detect an analyte – biosensors and nanodiagnostics
- Influence biological processes – biomaterials and nanotherapeutics
- Effectively catalyse reactions to generate valuable products – electrocatalysis
- Create well defined 3D cell cultures – biomaterials
