Hongbin’s research currently focuses on elastomeric protein-based biomaterials and single molecule protein mechanics. He and his research team are developing rational approaches to engineer protein-based biomaterials with tailored mechanical properties by using well-characterized single protein building blocks. His work is bridging the gap between single molecule mechanics and mechanics of macroscopic biomaterials.
