BIOMOLECULAR ASSEMBLIES

We develop biomimetic nanomaterials that are compatible and can interact with living systems. These synthetic materials that recapitulate native physiological cues will enable us to manipulate cellular behavior in vitro.

The Ardoña Research Group at UC Irvine aims to pioneer next-generation responsive and adaptive materials, which can be used as tools for unraveling biological mechanisms that involve action potential propagation and cellular mechanotransduction in contractile tissues, and pharmaco-/toxicokinetics across biological barrier tissues. We will capitalize on the biocompatibility and synthetic versatility offered by biomacromolecules to impart sensing or stimuli-responsive function on these materials.
