Our lab focuses on the integration of biotechnologies in cellular and molecular engineering for the development of genetically-encoded biosensors and the application of them to visualize molecular events in live cells and animals. We also develop molecular sensors and transducers for the engineering of immune cells to control genetic and epigenetic activities targeting cancer immunotherapy. For example, we engineer CAR T cells and macrophages so that they can be remotely and non-invasively controlled by ultrasound waves to recognize and eradicate tumors.
