Our lab focuses on developing microdevices that facilitate the advancement of basic neuroscience and translational cancer applications. Our long-term mission is to make microfluidic devices as intuitive to use as smartphones and make them easily available to biomedical scientists in order to enable novel quantitative experiments, diagnostics, and therapies. In general, microfabrication technology allows us to address large numbers of single cells with sub-cellular resolution, resulting in statistically-rich single-cell data. Toward that goal, we develop advanced general-purpose microfluidic technology (such as microvalves, combinatorial micromixers, and cell traps), and computer algorithms for high-throughput recognition of sub-cellular morphology.
