Welcome to the Nanoscale Biotic-Abiotic Systems Engineering (N-BASE) Laboratory at Northwestern University under the direction of Professor Dean Ho.

Our vision is to develop innovative technologies that harness biomolecular activity perfected by nature towards applications in cellular interrogation, bio-energetic/functional materials development, and next-generation medicine. The modalities employed by our laboratory are pushing the frontier of biomedical and nanotechnology research towards the realization of tailored biology: the ability to configure desired bio-functionality into non-biological materials rapidly and on demand.
