Graphic illustrating what the Nano Micro Bio research group studiesOur research group creates new devices using nanotechnology and microfluidics for transformative use. We are currently exploring two major frontiers of research: (1) microfluidic-based 3D human tissue and tumor models that can be used for preclinical drug evaluation and personalized medicine and (2) wearable graphene oxide (GO)-based biosensors for mobile health.

Our campus is located on the bank of the Hudson River in New Jersey with a spectacular view of Manhattan, New York. At this world-class location, we are actively pursuing collaboration, translation, and entrepreneurship aimed at realizing the transformative use of our device ideas.

The group has produced five winners of the New Jersey Inventors Hall of Fame Graduate Student Award over the past five consecutive years. One of the students co-founded FlexTraPower in 2013 to commercialize our sensor technology.
