Dr. Yang received his BS from Nanjing University in 2001. He obtained his PhD in 2006 from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology under the supervision of Professor Bing Xu. Before starting his independent research at Nankai University in March 2009, he was a postdoctoral fellow with Prof. Matthew Bogyo at Stanford Medical School.

Our lab focus on the following research:

  1. Molecular hydrogels based on anti-cancer drugs and other therapeutic agents;
  2. Hybrid hydrogels based on Molecular hydrogels and polymeric hydrogels;
  3. Peptide hydrogels as adjuvants for vaccine and antibody production;
  4. Biohybrid hydrogels based on proteins and peptides

This picture highlights the applications of the molecular hydrogel in our lab


Our lab has series of molecular hydrogels of peptides for 3D/2D cell culture. They can also be used for drug/protein delivery. Anyone who is interested, pleased contact professor Yang. By the way, all are free!
