The objective of molecular engineering core lab is to develop novel scaffold materials for tissue engineering through molecular design. The focus areas are in preventive and regenerative medicine in visual neural pathway and central nervous system. Standing on the basis of improving optical imaging techniques in ophthalmology, further explorations in molecular imaging are anticipated for monitoring potential therapies. We aim to achieve the goal of neural protection and regeneration in these fields by combining expertise in fundamental science, engineering and clinical research through tissue engineering technology.
