Research

CELLULAR MECHANICS:

Our cellular mechanics research can be divided into two categories:

  • Intracellular mechanics deals with the mechanical properties of cells, which are known to be altered in disease and aging.
  • Extracellular mechanics makes use of the mechanical properties of the extracellular environment to control cell behavior and function

 

MICROFLUIDICS: 

Our interest also lies in the development of microfluidic tools for diagnostic and tissue engineering purpose.

  • Microfluidics for diagnostics: hand-in-hand with our intracellular mechanics research, this research will use microfluidics to evaluate cellular health status and sort diseased cells.M
  • Microfluidics for tissue engineering: hand-in-hand with our extracellular mechanics research, we will use microfluidics to mechanically stimulate stem cells to achieve tissue engineering
