Serial Suspended Microchannel Resonators

We developed a method for parallelizing microfluidic mass sensors to enable extremely precise measurements of single cell growth at unprecedented throughput. This innovation led to a startup (Travera LLC), a patent, and several publications (see publications section).

Characterizing deformability and surface friction of cancer cells

Metastasis requires the penetration of cancer cells through tight spaces, which is mediated by the physical properties of the cells as well as their interactions with the confined environment. Various microfluidic approaches have been devised to …
