Research areas in Haeshin Lee's group are dealing with Design and synthesis functional biomaterials and inspired by mussels and geckos; Development of nano-carriers for a variety of pharmaceuticals; Development of new surface chemistry for material-independent surface modifications; Self-assembly of peptides and proteins; Protein folding in solutions; and development of new gecko-mimetic adhesives.
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.
