Lab.
Micro+Nano Biosystems Lab.
Cells-on-a-chip in Tissue Engineering, Medical & Pharmaceutical Applications
Cells-on-a-chip is defined as those methods to cultivate living cells in micro+nanofluidic devices. Microscale techniques can provide advantages because the scale of the cultivated environment inside the chip is fitted to the size of the cells. Cells-on-a-chip promises great advances in basic biological research, diagnostics, biosensors, drug screening, tissue engineering and so on. An overriding objective of the Micro+Nano Biosystems Lab. is to elucidate the nature of how cells sense & respond to microscale environments, and to employ the principles revealed by these studies to seek new treatments for diseases including cancer and to develop tissue constructs for drug screening and tissue engineering.
Projects of Micro+Nano Biosystems Lab. are;
  • angiogenesis-on-a-chip
  • cancer cell-on-a-chip
  • neurons-on-a-chip
  • stem cells-on-a-chip
  • livers-on-a-chip and so on.
Micro+Nanofluidics
Micro+Nanofluidic systems manipulate or process very tiny fluid volumes in micro+nanometer-scaled channels. These systems offer a number of advantages for chemical and biological analysis, i.e. low consumption of samples and reagents, low cost for mass production, short times for analysis, flexibility and dimensional precision, and high resolution and sensitivity. They can also probe physical phenomena that are not observable on the macroscopic fluids.
Projects of Micro+Nano Biosystems Lab. are;
  • electrokinetic trapping - protein concentration/separation
  • microfluidic focusing - microchip flow cytometry
  • capillary flow - hemi-wicking, capillary diagnostic system
  • acousto microfluidics and so on.
  • Micro+nano fabrication & Mass-production
  • silicon micro+nano fabrication
  • glass/quartz micro+nano fabrication
  • soft-lithography
  • hard plastic micro+nano fabrication & mass-production
  • wrinkle/buckling nanostructure formation
  • Biomaterials & Nanoscale Materials
  • ECM, proteins & scaffolds
  • biodegradable microfluidics
  • nanobeads
