Research

image

The research interests in our group are mainly focused on: 1) mechanistic understanding of reversible deactivation radical polymerization (RDRP); 2) kinetically controlled (co)polymerization of multivinyl monomers (MVMs); 3) structural design and biomedical application of knotted/cyclized and branched polymers in skin wound healing and tissue regeneration. Our clinical targets are gene therapy of recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (RDEB), diabetic foot repair, cartilage regeneration and neural degenerative diseases.
