"A fidget spinner for the point-of-care diagnosis of urinary tract infection"

Issac Michael et al., Nature Biomedical Engineering, 2020

A fidget spinner inspired microfluidic chip allows highly sensitive and rapid diagnosis of urinary track infection (UTI) and antimicrobial susceptibility test (AST) only with hand power



"Near-Field Electrospinning for Three-Dimensional Stacked Nanoarchitectures with High Aspect Ratios", 

 Yang-Seok Park, Junyoung Kim,, Nano Letter,2019

Herein, we report on a direct-write 3D NFES technique to construct self-aligned, template-free, 3D stacked nanoarchitectures by simply adding salt to the polymer solution. Numerical simulations suggested that the electric field could be tuned to achieve self-aligned nanofibers by adjusting the conductivity of the polymer solution.




"Human Platelet Membrane Functionalized Microchips with Plasmonic Codes for Cancer Detection", 

Sumit Kumar et al.Advanced Functional Materials, 2019

Here, the role of platelets in cancer diagnostics is leveraged to design a microfluidic platform capable of detecting cancer‐derived extracellular vesicles (EVs) from ultrasmall volumes (1 µL) of human plasma samples. Further, the captured EVs are counted by direct optical coding of plasmonic nanoprobes modified with EV‐specific antibodies.



"A microfluidic chip for screening individual cancer cells via eavesdropping on autophagy-inducing crosstalk in the stroma niche "

Scientific Reports 7, Article number: 2050 (2017)


"Exodisc for Rapid, Size-Selective, and Efficient Isolation and Analysis of Nanoscale Extracellular Vesicles from Biological Samples"

ACS Nano., 11 (2), pp 1360–1370 (2017)

"FAST: Size-selective, Clog-free Isolation of Rare Cancer Cells from Whole Blood at a Liquid-liquid Interface"

Anal. Chem., 89, 1155−1162 (2017)

We are recruiting graduate students, post doctors, and researchers.
