Our multidisciplinary research group is focused on micro and nanoscale “lab-on-a-chip (LoC)” concepts for molecular/cellular level analysis of diseases. 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 and understanding the unique physical, chemical and biological processes in micro/nanoscale devices and by developing peripheral electronics and optics, we aim to address various challenges in today’s molecular study of diseases, such as sensitivity, specificity, high-throughput, multiplexing, and cost etc.

[PHD Positions Available]: We are looking for highly motivated PhD students  who have experimental experience in the following fields: MEMS devices, lab-on-a-chip devices, point-of-care testing, micro/nanofabrication, micro/nanofluidics, bio-instrumentation, biosensors, bioelectronics, bio-photonics.
