The department’s biosensors and biomedical instrumentation research focuses on the development of novel devices for monitoring the physiological and biochemical state of the human body.
Areas of active research include the development of magneto-elastic material-based biosensors for monitoring the in vivo biomechanical and chemical environment, the development of biomedical instrumentation for neonatology, and the development of optical sensors.
The Biomedical µDevices Lab focuses on investigating the microscopic structures that affect physiology and cell biology.
Research in the Biomedical Optics Laboratory is concerned with the way light interacts with human tissue and how this interaction can be used for developing novel ways to image physiological processes and anatomical structures.
The Brain Stimulation Engineering Lab uses novel brain stimulation paradigms through technology development, computational modeling, and experimental studies.
The Mechanobiology Lab uses computer vision techniques on live-cell microscope images to find out the fundamental mechanism underlying mechanosensation in the normal cells and the biomechanical signature in the diseased cells whose signaling has gone awry.
