David directs the micro and nanobioengineering lab. We are an interdisciplinary tream developing a variety of micro and nanotechnologies including capillaric microfluidics, lab-on-a-chip, 3D printing, micro and nanoarrays, microfilters, smart microbeads, and software. The main applications are bioanalysis from point-of-care tests targeting few markers for vaccine testing to large scale arrays and high throughput protein assays for basic biology study and biomarker discovery. Emerging areas include profiling of single exosome, rare circulating tumor cells and clusters, single cell RNA expression, duplexed aptamer scanning, multiplexed bead proteomics, organs-on-a-chip from cancer tissues cocultures, mini-brains, cardiac tissue and gastrointestinal tracts.
