Research themes:

"Our overall research interests and core expertise are in blood microfluidics. We are particularly interested in using microfluidic devices and systems to gain a better understanding of the dynamics of blood flow and of the traffic of various circulating cells in complex networks of microvessels. Additionally, we are developing microfluidic devices for testing the mechanical properties of blood cells and lab-on-a-chip technology for separating sub-populations of blood cells and rare circulating cells from samples of whole blood for diagnostic and other clinical applications.

Our current research focus is on the development and clinical translation of high-throughput microfluidic devices and single-cell analysis tools in the fields of blood storage and transfusion medicine. We are developing novel technologies for improving the safety and efficacy of blood transfusions, and for making blood products available for life-saving transfusions in resource-limited settings. An additional significant thrust is the development of enabling technology for low-cost diagnostics at the point-of-care.

Our research has been funded by the National Blood Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, U.S. Army and a 2012 NIH Director's Transformative Research Award (T-R01)." Description from group website main page.
