NanoEngineering For Health

We use novel nanofabrication strategies based on thermal scanning probe lithography (tSPL) and nanomaterials to develop fascinating opportunities for biomedical applications.

Nanoscale diagnostics plays a crucial role in precision medicine, wearables, and point of care devices by enabling identification of specific genetic mutations, protein expression patterns, diseases, and other molecular characteristics that can guide treatment decisions with the goal of optimizing treatments and comfort for patients, preventing diffusion of highly infectious diseases, minimizing side effects and maximizing therapeutic efficacy.


Nanoscale biosensing platforms can be integrated into wearables and point-of-care (PoC) microchips based on semiconductors, such as Silicon or Graphene, nanodevices. These ultra-miniaturized portable and wearable microchips can be used for multiplexed diagnostics at home, in a watch, or on-the-go. The same microchips also provide platforms to detect, mitigate, and respond to biological threats in our environment, including bioterrorism and emerging airborne infectious diseases.

We are looking for motivated PhDs and Postdocs for a project on next generation biosensors and wearable devices.
