Our group aims to develop integrated microsystems that enable new applications not possible before. Using a systems approach, we are applying fundamentals of physics, chemistry, and engineering to solve problems relevant to today’s critical
biomedical applications. In particular, we emphasize the use of
amplification strategies to add orders of magnitude improvement to chemical and biomolecular sensing, while at the same time improving the simplicity and
usability of the technology.
We belong to the Fischell Department of Bioengineering and the Fischell Institute for Biomedical Devices. We are also a part of the Institute for Systems Research, the Maryland Nanocenter, the Maryland Pathogen Research Institute, and the Microsystems@Maryland community.
