We integrate biological, chemical, and microfluidic technologies to robustly interrogate, characterize and manipulate cellular activities. We collaborate cross-disciplinary researchers to develop methods that solve pressing unmet research and medical needs. We enjoy making the design and hands-on development of microfluidic devices from scratch.
We address major technological challenges in the functional analysis of biological systems and cell-biomaterial interactions for regenerative medicine using microfluidic systems. Our experimental efforts efficiently produce multiparameter datasets from key biological models that pave the way for advanced analytical methods.
