Micro and Nano Integrated Biosystem (MINIBio) Laboratory

The Micro and Nano Integrated Biosystem (MINIBio) Lab aims to develop innovative micro and nano technologies for current and future healthcare demands. The lab strives to educate next generation biomedical engineers with cutting-edge research approaches and an integrated knowledge of engineering and biological sciences.

The research is highly multidisciplinary, and focuses on the intersection of engineering, biological sciences, physical sciences, and medicine.

Current research focuses of the group include:

  • micro/nano fluidic systems to study cancer metastasis
  • nanomaterials and nanomaterial integrated microdevices for in vitro diagnosis
  • nanomaterials and implantable devices for in vivo diagnostics, drug delivery and disease monitoring
  • Lab-on-chip biomarker detection in body fluid
  • high-performance devices for gas chromatography (GC) and volatile organic compound (VOC) detection
