报告题目:Engineering Ultrasmall Metal Nanoclusters for BiomedicalApplications 

报告摘要:Ultrasmall metal nanoclusters (NCs) have attracted increasingattention from the scientific community due to their fascinatingphysicochemical properties. Today, functional metal NCs are finding growingacceptance in biomedical applications. To achieve a better performance inbiomedical applications, metal NCs can be interfaced with biomolecules, such asproteins, peptides, and DNA, to form a new class of biomolecule-NC composites(or bio-NCs in short), which typically show synergistic or novelphysicochemical and physiological properties. In this talk, I will discuss someof our recent studies at the interface of metal NCs and biomolecules,highlighting some unique physicochemical properties and the biologicalfunctions of bio-NCs.
