Welcome to the Xia lab
A lab dedicated to chemical and synthetic biology
Gazing in awe at the majesty of the universe, the delicacy of life, and the intricacy of our inner world, we may wonder who the designer is and how all these work. The mystery, at least partially, lies at the building blocks of life, protein, a type of molecule that follows all the principles of organic chemistry and also is the main theme of our lab.
The quest for a better life also ignites our curiosity about making new things. Engineering machinery that never exists on earth allows us to craft solutions for several grand challenges that our human beings face, including environmental crisis and diseases.
