Maryland MEMS & Microfluidics Laboratory

Principal Investigator: 
3126 Glenn L Martin Hall

Maryland MEMS & Microfluidics Laboratory researchers investigate microfluidic and lab-on-a-chip systems for improving human health. Major research thrusts include multidimensional biomolecular separation platform for high throughput biomarker and drug target discovery, interfaces coupling microfluidics to mass spectrometry, integrated ion channel sensing systems, multi-scale systems enabling new modes of nanoparticle drug encapsulation and delivery, and novel polymer micro/nanofluidic fabrication technologies. MML research also encompasses silicon MEMS, with an emphasis on piezoelectric microsystems, as well as the integration of silicon MEMS with microfluidic systems.
