StickTronics | Thin-film electronics and sensors are built on a temporary holding sticker, so called as “StickTronics”, for ubiquitous applications.

E-Textiles | Direct spray writing of e-textiles into stretchy fabrics is enabled for ambulatory monitoring of health conditions in large animals.

Conformal Flexible Biopatch | Ultrathin biomedical devices are developed to establish a highly conformal interface with curvilinear surface of biological systems.

Smart Soft Contact Lenses | Ultrathin and soft biomedical devices are anchored to commercial brands of soft contact lenses for effective management of ocular health and diseases.

Human Hand Mimicking Sensory Gloves | Stretchable sensors are integrated with nitrile gloves to  endow prosthetic hands with human-like perception, softness, and appearance.

Skin Mimicking Biopatch | Wireless biomedical devices are tailored to be safely attachable to the skin for remote health monitoring.

Tissue Mimicking Biopatch | Direct writing of personalized sensor patches is enabled for continuous assessment of living cells and tissues.

Water Strider Mimicking Biopatch | Ultrathin biomedical sensors are developed to stay afloat on cell culture medium for long-term reliable monitoring of living cells and tissues in real time.

Degradable Nanoneedle Biopatch | Biodegradable nanoneedles are integrated with water-soluble patches for painless and long-term sustained delivery of drugs into the human skin or eye.

The Lee Research Group focuses on bridging a critical gap between engineering and unmet clinical needs. Our scholarly efforts are dedicated to addressing the gap using novel yet simple microscale transducers with a clear path towards translation into measurable economic and societal impacts. We explore a variety type of wearable biomedical devices that are safely attachable to the skin or eye, allowing for continuous remote assessment of human health and diseases. The pragmatic application of these devices is boundless ranging from healthcare to rehabilitation and to telemedicine.
