Prof. Dar-Bin Shieh is the Founding Chair and Distinguished Professor of the International Institute of Macromolecular Analysis and Nanomedicine Innovations (iMANI) and the Institute of Oral Medicine in National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), Taiwan. He is also the session chief of Oral Diagnosis and Pathology in the Stomatology Department in NCKU Medical Center. His research interest is in nanomedicine, biophotonics, mitochondria medicine and cancer biology.
Some highlights of his prior works include: In vivo non-invasive optical biopsy by harmonic generation tomography (2006 Optics Express cover); Artificial targeted light activated nano scissor for gene sequence selective editing modulated by light (Biomaterials, 2010); Multi-modal molecular imaging nano contrast (Journal of American Chemical Society cover, 2010).
Nanotribological analysis of tooth subject to combined laser and topical fluoride treatment (Journal of Dental Research cover, 2013).
Under an international collaboration, he and colleagues explored the mystery of ancient species gigantism of mineral tissues by advanced Synchrotron radiation and published an article as the cover story of Nature (2013 April).
