In September 2018, I embarked on my postdoctoral research journey at the Department of Chemistry, National Tsing Hua University, where I had the privilege of also completing my graduation. My rigorous investigations in the field of nanomedicine, focusing primarily on nanomaterials fabrication, drug delivery, and diverse therapies including boron neutron capture, immunotherapy, photodynamic, and photothermal, have been recognized and published in esteemed international journals. Throughout this tenure, I have acquired extensive experience in cell culture techniques, animal model handling, particularly mice, and developed a solid expertise in nanomaterials synthesis. My competencies extend to a range of technical skills such as photochemistry, SEM and TEM analysis, conjugation chemistry, zeta potential assessment, particle sizing, electron microscopy (EM and cryoEM), liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry (LC-MS) quantitation, and various assay executions. I have hands-on proficiency in managing mammalian/human cell cultures, conducting drug delivery and photodynamic therapy on cancer cells, operating advanced instruments like Flow Cytometry FACS Calibur, Fluorescence Microscopy, Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopy (LSM 700), ELISA Plate reader, along with executing viability, apoptosis, necrosis, hypoxia, and heat shock protein assays. Furthermore, I have gained significant experience in immune response assays, boron neutron capture therapy for cancer cells, both in vitro and in vivo, as well as intravenous administration of nanocarrier/drugs in mouse models, IVIS imaging, and immunological or histological tissue examination. This exhaustive background equips me with a robust foundation in nanomedicine research, driving my present endeavors in the field.
