for Bio-inspired Material and Bio-interface
Home Research Group Member Publications News Opening Course Contact Us
Welcome to the research group under the direction of Dr. Xi Yao in the Department of Biomedical Sciences at CityU Hong Kong.

We are a group of experimentalists dedicated to solving both scientifically interesting problems in interface and soft matter, and those with more near-term application. We start from chemistry to design materials, and we use nanotechnology and engineering tools to optimize material performance and promote potential application in biomedicine. Applications of our work include anti-fouling and anti-biofouling, water and energy sustainability, biochemical sensing and diagnostics. Our research interest includes self-healable material, nanoparticle and micro/nanoneedle development, surface science and engineering. We are developing innovative technologies for drug delivery, pathogen detection and diagnostics.



Two Ph.D studentships are available for the entry of 2020.

Research positions are available. A research assistant position is available asap. Experienced candidates can apply for Senior Research Assistant or Research Associate. Please email Dr. Xi Yao your full CV or resume directly.
