Bio-Micro and Nanotechnology
What is Bio-Micro and Nanotechnology?
Faculty in this technical research area develop molecular-scale materials and lab-on-a-chip devices to sense, manipulate, and re-engineer molecular and cellular structure and function. By applying semiconductor fabrication techniques to biology, our researchers can create next-generation tools used in life science research, drug development and screening, genomics, disease diagnosis, and environmental monitoring.
