Welcome to the XuLab

Bioanalytical/Biochemistry/Bionanotechnology/Bionanomaterials/Biomedical Sciences

Our research program lies at the interface of Chemistry, Biology and Engineering. The central theme of our research program is the development and application of cutting-edge bio- and nano- technologies and ultrasensitive analytical methodologies to address fundamental and practical questions in chemical, biochemical and biomedical sciences. In particular, the primary goal of our research program is to study chemical reactions and cellular pathways in single live cells in real-time at the single-molecule level. We aim to address the most significant and challenging questions in life sciences; to explore living organisms at the single-cell and single-molecule resolutions; to unravel mysteries that presently prohibit us from completely understanding diseases (cancer) from their onsets to their development; and to design new tools for earlier disease diagnosis and effective treatment. Ultimately, this research program will lead to the discovery of new chemical and biochemical mechanisms, new cellular pathways and functions, and the invention of novel technologies.
