The Center for Nano-Bio Convergence is responsible for developing novel methodologies to measure and manipulate single cells, tissues, and biomaterials at a bio-molecular nano-scale using nanotechnology based on lasers, ion beams, and nano-probes. These new nano-bio methods are expected to foster innovative scientific and technological biomedical possibilities.
Was established to develop the fundamental technology in the area of nanotechnology, and to play a role in facilitating the industrialization and new industry and securing national competitive edge while gradually/systematically constructing the cooperation system between industry, academy, research institute and government area.
The Center's primary interest is in bionanotechnology, with a special focus on nanobiochips, nanosystems for drug delivery, single biomolecule engineering, nanobiofactories, bioNEMS, and fundamentals for bionanotechnology.
The CSS was established in 1997 to develop new supramolecular assemblies with desired structures, properties and functions by utilizing the principles of molecular recognition and self assembly. Emphasis is placed on the supramolecular systems that can provide the operating principles of molecular switch, molecular memory, and sensor.
The objective of SNU Graphene Research Lab. is to develop futuristic 2-dimensional nanomaterials with enhanced physical/chemical/biological and electrical/mechanical/optical properties, which can be applied to overcome the current limits of IT/BT/ET technologies.
The Major research activities in nano fabrication laboratory (NFL) are focused into two important technologies in materials science and engineering, which are nanotechnology and thin-film technology. For the contribution in nanotechnology, the key technology, the quantum dot formation is investigated by two major methods to form quantum dot, which are top-down and bottom-up approaches.
The ultimate goal of Choi's Group is to develop a biochip which can be used as a new generation electronic devices. In order to achieve those things, Choi's Group has studied the fundamental and advanced techniques involved in the development of the bio memory.
