Nano-Precision Mechano-Biology Group

Bringing nanoscale techniques
toward single-molecule mechanobiology

Biology is coordinated interactions of molecules. We investigate the mechanics of biological systems with nanoscale approaches at the single-molecule level. We employ existing techniques like molecular tweezers, fluorescence imaging, and nano/microfabrication, and develop new methods when necessary.


(2020/7) Minkwon Cha will be joining the lab as the first postdoc, starting in September. He is trained in single-molecule biophysics and now finishing up his PhD at KAIST/SNU. He also knows how to handle wild cats. Welcome!
(2020/7) First members of the group! Tae-hyun Yang and Jun Hyuk Park from Physics Dept. join the lab as the first PhD students. Ah-hyun Kim also joins us as the lab manager and will take care of administrative work. Welcome you all!
(2020/7) The lab officially opens in POSTECH.
(2020/6) Lab construction has started, scheduled to finish in July. Seems like a lot of work.
(2020/4) Shon lab website has launched.
