ENG EK 481: Introduction to Nanotechnology (Fall 2017, Spring 2019) This course explores the electronic, mechanical and optical properties of materials at the nanoscale and their applications in nano-scale devices. For more information, please view our Syllabus.

CAS CH 131: General Chemistry for the Engineering Sciences (Fall 2018) This course is intended to provide an intensive one-semester introduction to the fundamentals of chemical reactivity with developing the analytical tools required for the quantitative measurement and description of chemical reactions, the role chemical concepts played in connecting molecular structure to macroscopic properties. For more information, please view our Syllabus.

BME Senior research projects 2D and 3D nanomaterial based scaffolds for neuron regeneration (Fall 2017 – present) The projects consist of two directions: 1) to study how the surface chemistry of 2D nanoladder scaffold would affect the growth pattern of the regenerated neurites; and 2) to fabricate 3D scaffold based on the 2D nanoladder structure to enable in vivo application for spinal cord regeneration.

International Research Experience for Undergraduate (REU). We work with international undergraduates on developing biomaterials and photonic materials in the lab. Dr. Yang also directs the program. More details see iREC website http://sites.bu.edu/ece-ireu/
