Nuclear Pore Mimics

Attempts to build a fully artificial nuclear pore complex capable of transporting biomolecules by a shuttle-cargo mechanism.


Protein Purification

Using polymer brushes for large-scale separation of biomolecules, which may lead to great cost reductions in production of biopharmaceuticals.
