A design principle of functional biomolecules for highly effective energy utilization
  A transition to renewable energy technologies requires new chemistry to learn from nature. It is our challenge to understand the efficient bioenergetic processes of nature and to construct human-engineered energy utilization systems. The research interests in our group focus on the design and assembly of biomacromolecules for energy conversion, catalysis and signal transduction in water, the solvent of life. We take synthetic, organic chemical, biochemical and biophysical approaches to understand the biological molecular recognition and chemical reactions. Miniature proteins and protein/ nucleic acids assemblies are explored to construct artificial biomimetic devices mimicking the function of biological systems, transformation of cellular signals by fluorescent biosensors, directed self-assembly of peptides and proteins, artificial receptors and enzymes based on the complex of RNA and protein, and photosynthesis of chemicals currently made industrially.
