Projects in this multidisciplinary research program address the development of lab-on-a-chip devices, from the development of basic measurement methods and novel microfluidic device elements to the application of lab-on-a-chip technology to biochemical problems. Current work involves the development of a microfluidic device to characterize individual protein aggregates using microsecond flash photography (including fluorescence) and electrical resistance pulses. We are also developing a microfluidic nanocalorimeter to study protein unfolding and binding events. Also of interest are bio and immunoassays relevant to the safety and effectiveness of potential biologic drugs. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of this work, we are seeking applicants from diverse fields including chemistry, biology, physics, materials science, and engineering.
