Welcome to the Biofluidics Lab

We are interested in understanding fundamental principles that nature uses to build and control living systems at micrometer scales, in particular through their interactions with fluids. We then use this knowledge to design micrometer scale devices that have applications in health and environment. Current research focus is on understanding physical and molecular mechanisms that govern cellular adhesion, motility and chemotaxis at intra- and inter- cellular level, and then use these insights to solve practical problems in cancer metastases and vascular tissue formation. Tools used in our research are: microfabricated devices, advanced quantitative imaging, and numerical/analytical computation
