Translational Multiscale Biofluidics Lab

Microfulidics | Organ-on-a-chip | Biosensors

Translational Multiscale Biofluidics Laboratory is actively studying problems involving multiscale biological fluids that are related to disease models and developing biomedical devices translated into commercial products and new “theranostic” strategies. We aim to develop biomedical devices that enable to diagnose diseases in an early stage and new therapeutic strategies for treating diseases effectively. We extensively collaborate with clinical investigators, industrial partners, and start-ups. TMB Lab is a diverse group of members who have a broad range of expertise in engineering, physics, and medical research.
