Research:

The focus of our research is to develop integrated, automated and high-throughput microfluidic and Lab-on-a-Chip (LoC) devices for medical, biological, and environmental applications. We are interested in all aspects of these miniaturized devices, from design of functional materials, to development of compatible microfabrication techniques for their integration into LoC devices in the form of microstructures, to application of such devices in organism-on-a-chip assays or point-of-care and point-of-need diagnosis and detection of various analytes and biomarkers

Research:

The focus of HBO Lab is on the design and development of thermal and optical imaging technologies and devices with applications in medical diagnosis and screening. Optics-based medical devices are of particular interest to us due to their intrinsic ability of revealing malignancies in their early stages. The early diagnosis of diseases improves the effectiveness of treatments, promotes prevention rather than medical intervention, and is probably the only approach for us to win the war on cancer.

One of the major challenges in optical imaging of endogenous tissue contrast is the poor specificity due to background signals from the healthy tissue. The HBO Lab’s vision is to overcome this shortcoming by separating excitation and detection channels (i.e, Hybrid methods). In this scenario, crosstalk between the channels takes place by energy conversion at malignant sites that are sensitive to the excitation.
