Yan Research Group
Research in our laboratory has a general focus on developing new conjugation chemistry that is general, efficient, can accommodate ligand diversity, maintain ligand bioaffinity, and give bioactive and stable interfaces. We employ the powerful principle of organic synthesis to develop new conjugation reactions that can be used to synthesize molecular and nanomaterial conjugates, especially for applications in nanotechnology and nanomedine. Project areas include new click-type chemistry, antibiotic conjugates, graphene chemistry, glyconanomaterials, mesoporous nanomaterials and liposomes for drug delivery, and new antimicrobial therapies.
Some of our research are summarized in the attached poster [click to download].
