Metal nanomaterials of different sizes, shapes, and structures are finding increasing acceptance in biological applications. Metal nanomaterials can be interfaced with biological materials to form a new class of designer organic-inorganic hybrids (BioNanoMetals) which can be used to enable the green synthesis of metal nanomaterials and the safe use of nanometals in biomedical applications. The group is interested in investigating the basic design principles for functional BioNanoMetals and addressing fundamental issues on the interactions between the biological systems and metal nanomaterials.
Founded by faculty from Biological Sciences, Chemistry, and Physics, the Centre for BioImaging Sciences's (CBIS) research is focused on the science and application of biological imaging by light and electron microscopy and the development of computational and microscopy-based methods and technologies.
In 2014, the National Research Foundation (NRF) of Singapore has awarded NUS with a S$ 50 M grant over the next 10 years in order to support the operational costs of GRC's labs and micro and nano-fabrication facility and the exploration, synthesis, and development of new devices based on two-dimensional (2D) materials of which graphene is the most famous, creating a new Centre for Advanced 2D Materials, directed by Prof. Antonio H. Castro Neto.
Established in 2010 within the National University of Singapore, the Graphene Research Centre (GRC) was created for the conception, characterization, theoretical modeling, and development of transformative technologies based on two-dimensional crystals, such as graphene.
Their mission is to investigate the natural structure-property-function relationship of cells and molecules so as to further understand the physiological functions and establish possible connections to human diseases.
The group is particularly interested in discovering novel nanobiology of nanomaterials. Some of this nanobiology is detrimental to the organism's well being and some is beneficial. The differentiation of either conclusion depends heavily on our understanding of how nanomaterials interact with biological systems. The group approaches their work from an observation initiated and hypothesis driven manner. From these findings, they aim to develop nanoparticle specific rules that drive certain cell effect. Understanding these rules helps to design better nanoparticles.

Graphene is a new age multifunctional material. As chemists, we are engaged in the growth, processing, derivatizing of graphene to make dna sensors, hybrids for solar cells, membrane for water purification. We hope to improve the quality of human life by researching on graphene, which we believe to be a fundamental building block for many useful devices.
