Shen Laboratory

Nano-antimicrobial materials

Welcome to the Shen Lab

Our laboratory is focussed on the discovery of new antimicrobial nanomaterials in treating bacterial infections, particularly to fight ‘superbugs’ and we examine how those novel nano-antibiotics interact with bacterial membranes.

We're part of the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, and a member of the Infection & Immunity Program
and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and Materials Science and Engineering

Our research

We use multidisciplinary approach that includes the application of neutron scattering techniques (neutron reflectometry and small angle neutron scattering), formation of gram-negative and gram-positive bacterial membranes, advanced nanotechnology in the combat against anti-microbial resistance and microscopies.

  • We aim to develop novel Cyclodextrin based antimicrobial polymers to combat Multi Drug Resistant bacteria infection.

  • Our lab focuses on the targeted therapy of the ophthalmic diseases via intraocular drug delivery
