Our focused areas include mechanobiology of human diseases and development of mechanobiologically inspired platforms in microfluidics, tunable nanomaterials and wearable microdevices to better detect, diagnose and treat diseases. We have won numerous research awards and honors and have also spun out several startup companies to translate technologies from our lab to bedside and market. We are affiliated with the Mechanobiology Institute, Centre for Advanced 2D Materials and SMART.
