The Biomedical Microdevices and Microenvironments Laboratory (BMML) is focused on the design and engineering of manufacturable, disposable microfluidic systems for low-cost point-of-care molecular diagnostics. We are currently working on devices for the detection of infectious diarrhea, influenza and MRSA.

We are also studying the interactions between cells and synthetic microenvironments. Specifically, we are interested in building culture systems in vitro that mechanically mimic the physiological environment. These synthetic microenvironments are intended for use in diagnostics, high throughput drug screening, and to enable previously impossible basic science studies. Currently we have projects aimed at recapitulating the microenvironments of the breast, cochlea and neural tissue.
