Infectious Diseases-Antibacterial:

With the growing challenges of drug-resistant bacteria and the need for new classes of antibiotics,  we are developing various classes of nanostructured antibacterial agents for healthcare and biotechnology applications. Using our engineering strategies, we explore their potential as next-generation antibacterial solutions while gaining mechanistic insights.
