Welcome to the NanoBio Systems Lab


Research Interest::

The NanoBio Systems Laboratory is interested in solving grand challenge problems in the broad area of health and energy through the use of micro/nano systems technology. Our effort is multidisciplinary, encompassing expertise from engineering (electrical, biomedical, mechanical, chemical, computer), physical science (chemistry), and life sciences (neuroscience, microbiology, cancer biology, biochemistry, plant pathobiology, veterinary medicine, agriculture).

Our current research themes are microphysiological systems (organ-on-a-chip), metastatic cancer analysis, microbes as biorefinery, and microbial physiology and functions in infectious disease.


Research Funding:

Research in the NanoBio Systems Laboratory is supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, National Institutes of Health (NIH, National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB)), National Science Foudnation (NSF) (Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation (EFRI), CBET, ECCS), Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), U.S. Army Corp of Engineer, Korean Ministry of Knowledge Economy, Qatar National Research Foundation (QNRF), and Samsung Electronics, Inc.
