Research Interests

Bioinorganic Engineering

Utilization of metal ions as structural and functional motif assembles metalloenzymes and metalloproteins for a variety of essential processes in biological system. Through artificial evolution, bioinorganic engineering defines the translational incorporation of the inherited nature of synthetic metallocofactors, including (catalytic) reactivity, redox activity, photophysical properties (X-ray, UV-vis, NIR, etc.), and magnetic properties, into organic and inorganic polymers for functional applications. In this bioinorganic engineering lab, we aim to control the generation, capture, stabilization, delivery, transformation, and detection of bioactive gaseous molecules, such as nitric oxide, dihydrogen, and carbon dioxide. Through the  iterative study on structure  and reactivity of dinitrosyl  iron unit [Fe(NO)2], metal-pyrazolate framework, and MOF-derived metal nanoparticle@carbon materials, controlled manipulation of bioactive gaseous molecules will be translated to cancer treatment and regenerative medicine.

Spatial, Dosage, and Temporal Control on the Delivery of Nitric Oxide  for Regenerative and Cancer Therapy

Nitric oxide features ubiquitous physiology in respiration, (cardio)vascular, myocardial, immune, and neuronal system. Difficulty in the controlled delivery of nitric oxide, however, retards the translational application in pharmacology and biomedical engineering. In our lab, we utilized the dinitrosyl iron complexes (DNICs) as a novel prodrug for the delivery of nitric oxide and for the NO-related biomedical application. Relying on our development of the synthetic strategy for DNICs, a chemical library of DNICs was established.In terms of controlled release of nitric oxide, we discovered the controlled release of nitric oxide from DNICs triggered by pH, O2, temperature, photolysis, and magnetic field. On the other hand, we successfully applied DNICs for the NO-related anti-aging effect in C. elegans; vasodilation, myocardial relaxation, and myocardial inotropy effect in zebrafish; and reduction of blood pressure, enhancement of angiogenesis, osteogenesis, neurogenesis, tumor vessel normalization, anti-cancer effect, and anti-inflammatory effect in mouse. Regarding the development of DNICs for the delivery of nitric oxide in vivo, we welcome you to continue the investigation of DNICs for NO-related biomedical application through the conjugation with alternative biomedical materials and devices.

Controlled Generation and Detection of Dihydrogen

Besides its utilization as a renewable and clean energy source, dihydrogen features unexplored potential in inflammatory disease relying on its antioxidant reactivity, in particular, toward hydroxyl radical. However, limited solubility of H2 in aqueous solution and lack of a delivery system hamper the therapeutic efficiency and retard its biomedical application. In our lab, we discovered DNICs as a precursor for preparation of the Fe@FeOx electrode featuring electrocatalytic HER reactivity. To control the location of delivered dihydrogen, development of metal-organic frameworks (MOF) derived metal@porous carbon as implantable materials for catalytic generation of dihydrogen is undergoing. Moreover, MOF-derived metal nanoparticles shielded by porous carbon provide a mechanism for the steady, instead of burst, generation of dihydrogen.
