Our research is focused on expanding synthetic biology toolbox, CRISPR-Cas9 Platform for genome editing and novel biosynthetic pathways for chemicals, biofuels and biomaterials. We seek to apply these advances to address global challenges in drugs, energy supply and the environment. The recent advances in synthetic biology have led to the development of a number of synthetic parts, devices and systems for a wide range of applications in disease diagnostics, disease treatment, and production of biomaterials, biofuels and fine chemicals.

Currently, an urgent need arises to develop next generation synthetic circuits and technologies/ methodologies that can solve some of major issues of health, environment and energy. Our research will play a key role in scientific and technology progress at the interface of synthetic biology, bioengineering and healthcare. It will generate a new knowledge and new tools/ assays/ methods facilities towards the world-class research, education and training.
