Our multidisciplinary research group focuses on “lab-on-a-chip (LoC)” biomedical devices and systems. We develop and deploy advanced and innovative methods, devices and systems to enable the development of next-generation of tools for biomedical diagnostics and life science research. By harnessing the unique physical, chemical and biological processes in nano/micro/macro scale electronic/optic/photonic devices, we aim to address healthcare and biomedicine challenges existing today.
[Ph.D. Positions for Fall 2018 Available]: We invite the most motivated and talented Ph.D. candidates to join us in finding innovative solutions for healthcare and biomedicine. Our group is affiliated with both Electrical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering Department. Check here for more details.
