Our lab does highly interdisciplinary research. One focus is to create biomimetic microfluidic devices using various engineering techniques. For example, we apply 3D-printing, mold casting, softlithography, and laser-cutting to fabricate the devices. Electrospinning and hydrogels are commonly used to create 3D extracellular matrix on microfluidic devices for cell and tissue culture. We are also a group of analytical chemists. We develop new methodologies using spectroscopy, electrochemistry, separation, and mass spectrometry to quantitate molecules we are interested in. Currently, we are using these tools to study biofilm antibiotic resistance and endothelial dysfunctions in diabetes. In the future, we also plan to investigate liver and cancer biology.
