About Me


Our lab develops translational applications for nano- and microtechnologies, focusing on two key platforms: (1) solid-state nanopores, which we employ for a broad range of analyses at the single-molecule level including characterization of important biological sugars like hyaluronan and detection of nucleic acid biomarkers for cancer and infectious disease, and (2) 3D cell culture constructs integrated with microfluidic systems, which we use to study cancer progression and develop ex vivo approaches to personalized medicine.
