The vision of the Didar Lab is to design and develop bio-inspired technologies for applications in diagnostics, therapeutics, drug discovery and other biomedical related areas. They focus on engineering the physical and chemical interface between the biological and non-biological matter (i.e. the bio-interface) as a means for designing innovative, highly functional platforms for biomedicine. More specifically, they focus on developing effective bio-interfaces by minimizing non-specific binding of undesired biomolecules and cells (i.e. bacteria, plasma proteins) while enhancing the specificity and selectivity of the bio-interface towards desired biotargets and in effect, assuring reliability and performance of the final biomedical platform.
