Sustainable Polymers- Glycomimetics - Genome editing

Welcome to the Niu Group in the Department of Chemistry, Boston College. Taking inspirations from Nature, we build small and large molecules via synthetic organic chemistry, directed evolution, and synthetic biology, to improve our understanding of complex biological systems and identify new therapeutic opportunities.

What we do

Members of the laboratory will receive training on a broad range of skills in synthetic organic chemistry, polymer synthesis and characterization, nucleic acid chemistry, bioconjugation chemistry, molecular biology, and cell biology.
