Faculty Mentor: Professor Chad Mirkin
Shunzhi Wang obtained a B.S. in chemistry with highest honor from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His research work is currently focused on the study of surface chemistry and programmable self-assembly of functional nanomaterials. This research involves synthesizing nanoscale Metal-Organic Frameworks (nanoMOFs) building blocks and surface functionalizing them with oligonucleotides. He is working on creating novel stimuli-responsive functional nanomaterials as drug delivery carriers, chemical sensors, and enzyme-mimic catalysts.
