To meet the need of key biocatalysis technologies which have been applied in different  fields like biomedicine, biosafety, medical diagnosis and so on, thinking about the scientific frontier of the fusion of biocatalysis and chemical catalysis, Prof. Ge proposed "catalyst editing" as the core the research direction of enzyme catalyst engineering, and constructed high-efficiency biochemical compound catalyst with multi-scale interaction mechanism, which solves the common basic problems of incompatibility, difficulty and low efficiency in the bio-chemical cascade reaction.

Prof. Ge has published over 60 papers in scientific journals, including Nature Nanotechnology, Nature Catalysis, Nature Communications, Science Advances, Nano Letters, ACS Nano, ACS Catalysis.
