Our research aims to understand the concepts and mechanisms of complex bioscience challenges lying at the interface of biology, physics and engineering. We use advanced research techniques and technologies, ranging from microfluidics to imaging to 3D printing, to investigate biological processes at the micro- and nanoscale.

Our Research Areas

Liquid Biopsy on a Chip

Samples containing RNA and DNA lie at the heart of all biopsy techniques. Biosensors that can enhance the concentration of RNA and DNA in these samples, improving the detection sensitivity of these techniques.

High Throughput Drug Screening Using C. elegans

Caenorhabditis elegans worms are extensively used as model organisms in medicinal and genetic research. About 35% of its genes have human homologs.

Biomimetics

Being bioinspired from Nature and using micro and nano fabrication techniques, we are determined to to solve human problems by the help of biomimetic approach.
