Welcome to the MBMN Laboratory at Georgia Tech!
Nanomedicine is the medical application of nanotechnology for treatment and prevention of major diseases including cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Despite the progress and potential of nanomedicines, many cannot reach clinical trials due to critical challenges including poor reproducibility in high volume production and poor predictive validity of in vitro models. To overcome these challenges, we combine advanced micro and nanofabrication, synthetic biomaterials, and high-precision control systems to develop new microfluidic systems for microfluidic assembly, characterization, evaluation, and manufacturing of multicomponent nanomedicines.
Our laboratory provides collaborative environments for our lab members from diverse disciplines to learn each other and do interdisciplinary research. We believe that our lab members will be successful in their career with uniqueness and diversity, both of which are preferred or even required nowadays in industry as well as in academia. Our lab also has diverse collaborative opportunities with other research laboratories in areas of mechanical/electrical/biomedical/chemical engineering and biology/chemistry/materials sciences.
