Multi-scale Design Laboratory


Our research aims to develop new analytical technologies for medicine and biological research at the single cell scale. Our work is enabled by advances in fabrication, measurement, and computation across a wide range of domains and length scales. Our core capabilities include microfabrication, microfluidics, biomaterials, instrumentation, product development, and data analytics. Current research areas include 1) new technologies for cell sorting; 2) AI-based single cell image analysis; 3) red blood cell deformability in transfusion medicine; 4) single cell secretome analysis.


We are an audacious group of researchers with backgrounds in engineering and the life science including bioengineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer science, as well as in cell biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, and immunology.

Research Positions

We continuously recruit creative and motivated individuals to join our group as graduate students and postdocs. Students with engineering backgrounds should apply through the graduate programs in Mechanical Engineering or Biomedical Engineering. Students with a background in the life sciences should apply through the graduate program in Pathology and Laboratory of Medicine.
