Welcome to the Synthetic Biological Circuit Engineering Lab
Our research is primarily centered around Synthetic Biology, a fast growing discipline at the interface of biology and engineering with significant expanding application in diverse areas. Our interests include both fundamental and applied synthetic biology with focus on three synergistic research themes, i.e. the foundational technology, healthcare and industrial biotechnology applications.
We use a bottom-up engineering approach to design synthetic biological circuits and systems using characterised/standardised biological parts and devices. We build novel customised gene circuits for sensing, advanced information processing and computing of multiple cellular and environmental signals with applications ranging from biosensing, biocomputing and biomanufacturing to biotherapy.
