The Biofluidics Laboratory

 

 

We are developing fluidic models to realistically mimic the microvascular and tissue conditions and to better understand the inflammatory process in disease conditions. We are also developing a series of novel technologies for targeting drugs to irradiated tumors and pro-angiogenic compounds to infracted cardiac tissue and a “microvascular network on a chip” for studying microvascular drug delivery. The research is highly interdisciplinary in nature and involves a number of important collaborative efforts with scientists and engineers in academia and in industry.
