Investigating cellular scale phenomena from both a physical and biological sciences perspective


Ph.D., University of Wisconsin - Madison

Research Description

The Microtechnology, Medicine and Biology lab is focused on the novel and simple use of microscale physics and phenomena to create tools and methods to further biological and medical goals ranging from basic science to research tools to diagnostics.  We are especially interested and engaged in applying the lab's technologies to cancer, global health and multi kingdom interactions.  The MMB lab is very multidisciplinary and collaborative, working across disciplines and disease boundaries to create solutions that can be translated into widespread use.
