Micro-scaled Biomedical Device Laboratory                          logo


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.
