The Micro-Biomedical Laboratory focuses on the development and
application of micro-scaled devices based on MEMS and microfluidic
technology for biology, medicine, and biotechnology. Major
research topics is i) cell mechanics and mechanobiology, ii)
single cell analysis and antibiotic resistance, and iii)
microcarrier for biopharmaceutics and cell therapy.
