Research Area: Brain Science, Ultra-high Resolution Imaging, and Biomaterials
Lab: Molecular Bioimaging and Molecular Biomimetics Laboratory, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, KAIST, South Korea
All students interested in brain science, ultra-high resolution imaging, and biomaterials are welcome to our labChang, Jae-Byum, Molecular Bioimaging and Molecular Biomimetics Laboratory
- Masters Programs
- Doctoral Programs
Scholarships includes Full tuition and living expenses for master’s and doctoral (Ph.D.) students
Those who are interested in brain science, ultra-high resolution imaging, and biomaterials with relevant experience and supported undergraduate/graduate degree.
All majors are welcome.
The laboratory conducts a variety of research-based on four keywords: Biological systems, Hydrogel, Material growth, and Fabrication.
Our lab combines biology and materials engineering to do several multidisciplinary studies, such as :
1. Super-resolution molecular imaging technology for brain and organs -Method: Development of tissue imaging technology using material engineering approaches such as hydrogel -Purpose: To better understand brain and cancer to realize molecular medicine/precision medicine/personalized medicine
2. 2D, 3D hydrogel fabrication -Method: Produce a hydrogel with functionality and complexity that is several or dozen times more than before -Purpose: To realize a higher level of tissue engineering and soft material robotics
3. Bio-templated material growth -Method: Synthesize a creature as a template -Purpose: To synthesize materials that are much more complex and have more functionality than materials that can be made by humans
4. Development of new material synthesis method and patterning technology (Nanoscale material growth) -Method: Development of new patterning technology using hydrogel and material growth -Purpose: To develop better patterning technology compared to the existing patterning technology
In this way, our lab applies materials engineering to biology to develop new tissue imaging techniques and then apply the knowledge learned there back to materials engineering.
In addition, we apply existing patterning technology to hydrogels and develop new patterning technologies using hydrogels.
Our lab is still making breakthroughs in various fields based on various knowledge such as biology, chemistry, materials engineering, and electronics.
