C.H. Jonathan Choi Research Group

By exploring how nanoparticles interact with the living system across the length scales of organs, tissues, cells, and organelles, we design novel bionanomaterials for treating diseases arisen from various biological locations in vivo.

Prof Choi was invited to teach the course "Introduction to Nanomedicine: Basic Concepts and Applications" in the Globex Summer Program 2014 hosted by the College of Engineering at Peking University from July 7 to July 26, 2014.

Prof Choi's work (as co-first author) titled “Intracellular Fate of Spherical Nucleic Acid Nanoparticle Conjugates” was published in JACS! In this work, we explore in detail how three-dimensional DNA nanostructures traverse inside the cell after their initial cellular entry. [Abstract & Full Text]
Prof Choi was performing in the Annual Concert of the Engineering Faculty CUHK on April 8, 2014 in Lee Hysan Concert Hall, Esther Lee Building, CUHK. Check it out!

Sonata in E minor for Piano and Violin composed by W. A Mozart
E小調小提琴及鋼琴奏嗚曲 莫札特作曲
Mozart was intrigued by the idea of a sonata for piano and violin, in which both instruments form a true partnership rather than the earlier practice of one instrument accompanying the other. In his lifetime, he wrote about 35 sonatas for piano and violin. He wrote the first when he was six and the last in 1788, three years before his death. Only one is in a minor key, the Sonata in E minor, K. 304, written in 1778 in Paris. The minor tonality gives this music dignity and gravity. Indeed, his mother was terminally ill around the time of the composition of this two-movement sonata. Although the sonata was composed when Mozart was only 22, it is regarded as one of his finest chamber works.
