Jong-In Hahm

The Hahm group develops block copolymer-assisted protein arrays, featuring high protein density and functionality, using various self-assembled nanodomains in ultrathin diblock copolymer thin films for spatially arranging precisely known numbers of protein molecules into 1D or 2D arrays. They study key interaction parameters governing the adsorption of proteins to chemically homogeneous and/or heterogeneous nanosurfaces and predict and control the bottom-up assembly of proteins and other biomolecules on polymeric surfaces.
