We are developing physical measurement tools and methods for electronic-based manipulation and measurements of cells and their environment in well-controlled microsystems. This research opportunity focuses on the design, fabrication, and assessment of new nanoelectronic devices and materials for their use in applications such as cell measurements, biomolecule characterization, and advanced health care diagnostics. Our competencies are within the areas of electrokinetic manipulation of cells and other bioparticles in semiconductor-based lab-on-a-chip devices, and using a variety of microscopic techniques such as epifluorescence, confocal, TIRF, and AFM for validation. The electronic manipulation and measurement devices being developed in this project include, among others, dielectrophoresis devices, electromechanical actuators, and biosensors.
