Juewen Liu​Juewen Liu’s research uses DNA and lipids as functional polymers and catalysts at the nano-scale.

Liu has found DNA molecules can be altered to serve as highly selective biosensors and reaction catalysts. Applications include detecting heavy metals instantly in water samples and targeted drug delivery. He is also interested in interfacing lipids with nanoparticles to create hybrid nanomaterials.
