The Ee Research Group is located in the Department of Pharmacy, Faculty of Science at the National University of Singapore. With a team of scientists and students from diverse countries and backgrounds ranging from pharmaceutical sciences to biotechnology to microbiology, we embrace a multidisciplinary and collaborative approach in our quest to unlock the potential of peptide- and polymer-based biomaterials for regenerative medicine and antimicrobial action. We regularly play host to and welcome international postgraduate students and pre-university students, who display the drive and passion for scientific discovery, to our lab for research internships and exchanges.
Our paper titled "Manipulating turn residues on de novo designed β-hairpin peptides for selectivity against drug-resistant bacteria" was published on Acta Biomaterialia in November 2021.
Emily completed her Bachelor of Science in Biological Engineering at MIT in 2022. She is spending the summer doing a research internship on hydrogels with the Ee Research Group before returning to the US to begin her PhD in Bioengineering at UPenn in the fall.
