Location: 
Room 2211 Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Building

Professor Nam Sun Wang's research group focuses on biochemical and bioprocess engineering; bioengineering for protein and enzyme immobilization and angiogenesis; on-line chemical and biochemical process monitoring (including NIR, fluorescence, and light scattering); and biosensor design using protein arrays, antibody/antigen interaction, and DNA/DNA hybridization. Recent projects have included diagnostics based on urinary biomarkers, the development of a bioartificial pancreas for diabetics, advanced transdermal insulin patch technologies, synthesis and characterization of biocompatible, fluorescent nanostrucured silicon, and dense immobilization of proteins and enzymes on porous silica supports.
