Introduction

 

Our group is highly interdisplinary team involving the researchers from chemistry, biology, medicine and engineering fields. The current research interests are focusing on the understanding of biomedical fluidic systems at the micro- and nano- scale. We use both microfabrication and nanotechnology to discover and develop functional and biomimetic microsystem capable of investigating cancer biology, intelligent biomaterials and translational medicine.


Research Interest:

● Fundamentals in biomedical microfluidic systems

● Synthesis of biomimetic functional biomaterials

● Micro-pathophysiological system (Organ on a Chip)

● Drug screening at cellular and organism levels

● Point of care diagnostics
