Welcome to the Biomechatronics Group!

Goal: Microengineering tools for Quantitative Biology and Medicine

Our goals are focusing on developing new micro-technologies and using physical approaches to obtain a quantitative understanding of fundamental biological processes to contribute development of personalized medicine following Galileo’s quote: Measure what is measurable, and make measurable what is not so”.

Research Interests:

Biological Questions, Technical Approaches: Microfluidics, MEMS and Mathematical Models for Quantitive Cancer Biology, Microbiology and Plant Biology; Laparoscopic tools and Robotics Surgery.
