The Nano Biomechanics Laboratory is equipped with cutting edge facilities to conduct multidisciplinary research in the areas of micro & nano biomechanics and mechanobiology. The focused areas include cell and molecular mechanics studies of human diseases, mechanics based microfluidics for disease detection and diagnosis and use of micro/nanofabrication technologies for cell migration and cell mechanics studies. We are actively collaborating with researchers and clinicians from both local and overseas institutions. Our lab has won several research awards and honors including The President's Technology Award (PTA), the IES Prestigious Engineering Achievement Award, Faculty Research Award, highly cited author awards, best paper awards and best poster awards in international conferences. We have also co-founded several start-up companies that exploit technologies that we have developed in our lab. Our research was cited by the MIT Technology Review magazine as one of the top ten emerging technologies of 2006 that will "have a significant impact on business, medicine or culture".
