 Microdevices Laboratory

Research in our group is centered on biomedical appli-cations of MEMS (BioMEMS) and nanotechnology. This includes a variety of device and microsystems to address important clinical problems. Our group collaborates closely with physicians in order to transfer the technology to the clinic. This website presents brief descriptions of the current and recent projects pursued in our lab. For more information see the published literature or contact us.
