Biography

After receiving his B.S. from Tianjin University, Huaimin obtained his PhD. in 2015 from Nankai University under the supervision of Professor Zhimou Yang. Before starting his independent research, he was a postdoctoral fellow with Prof. Bing Xu at Brandeis University. His research interests mainly focus on applying supramolecular assemblies of small molecules to explore and engineer living organisms; designing functional supramolecular nanomaterial for applications in materials chemistry and biomedicine. 


Research

1) Self-assembly in cellular milieu for controlling cell fate

2) Controlling (nucleo)peptide self-assembly and it's applications

3) In-situ construction of active probes in cell milieu

4) The application of supramolecular hydrogel in cancer therapy, vaccine adjuvant and tissue engineering
