Research Projects in the Wei Group

Our group uses a multidisciplinary approach to design synthetic interfaces with application to materials science, the life sciences, and sometimes both. Each research group member develops a core set of expertises selected from a wide range of research tools, including organic and nanomaterials synthesis, surface chemistry and analysis, electron and optical microscopy, and cell culture techniques. Many of our research projects are enhanced by collaborations with other research groups on campus, at Discovery Park (a state-of-the-art research facility at Purdue), or further abroad.
