On 30th Nov 2019, Zhao Tingbi (D2), Department of Bioengineering，PhD student received 2nd GLowing Polymer Symposium in KANTO Best Presentation Award. For outstanding results, excellent presentation and enthusiasm in research presented at the 2nd GLowing Polymer Symposium in KANTO (GPS-K 2019).
<About awarded research> Title: Fluorescent Tunable Polymer Nanoparticle for Visualization of Cell-Surface Protein-Specific Sialylation based on Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) We developed a fluorescent tunable polymer nanoparticle probe and established a dual-labelled FRET system on the cell surface. Based on this improved strategy, the imaging effect for protein-specific sialylation was significantly enhanced, and more obvious signal response was observed upon drug treatment. It has shown potential in application for early diagnosis of diseases.
<Your impression & future plan> It's my great honor to receive this award. I feel very grateful to Prof. Takai and other lab members. I will go on to expand my research in the future.
