Centre for Antimicrobial Bioengineering

@ Nanyang Technological University (Singapore)


The Centre for Antimicrobial Bioengineering studies new antimicrobial biomacromolecules to combat resistant Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. We are an interdisciplinary group of polymer chemists, sugar chemists, microbiologists, and molecular cell biologists assembled for this noble purpose.



Professor Mary Chan-Park


Dr Chan-Park did her PhD in polymers in MIT in 1993. She then did her postdoctoral fellow under the sponsorship of Dow Corning (USA).  She worked for 10 years in industries in various technical management positions in USA and Singapore. She was a senior technical manager in Sipix Imaging (CA, USA) from 1999-2001 working on electronic paper. She then joined the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) as Associate Professor in 2001.


Dr Chan is presently a professor at the School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at the Nanyang Technological University Singapore (NTU Singapore). Dr Chan-Park’s main research interests are in polymers in nanoscience and biotechnology. She has published extensively, with more than 200 papers in top-tier journals such as Nature Materials, Advanced Materials, Advanced Functional Materials, JACS, Small, ACS Nano, Biomaterials, etc.
