Our laboratory focuses on understanding cell function through the development and use of novel micro-, nano-, and molecular-scale technologies. Current research focuses on the following three areas:

1. Microscale Integrated Cell biology Systems (MICS); Development of automated microdevices to sort, culture, and analyze cells (Microfluidics, Bio-MEMS, Subcellular signaling).
2. Panscopic design and synthesis of biomaterials (this means spanning all length-scales from the macroscopic, microscopic, nanoscopic, to molecular scale). Nanotechnology (Protein nanopatterning).
3. Microenvironomics; The systematic study --using MICS and Panscopic Biomaterials-- of how micro- and nanoscale environments affect cell function.
