Biomedical Micro/Nano Device Lab at Texas Tech University focuses on developing transnational biomedical platforms for microfluidic automation, chemical and biomolecule detection, and biomimetic tissue engineering by using micro- and nanotechnologies. For microfluidic automation, a universal fluid processor using microvalve array and novel digital microfluidics which enable the automation of the basic fluidic operations to achieve totally automated assays. For chemical and biomolecule detection, we are utilizing capillary electrophoresis, impedance sensors, electrochemical sensors, and optical sensors as well as a novel paper microfluidic platform for rapid and portable medical diagnostics and environmental monitoring. In addition, we also conduct several organ chip project to recapitulate heart-valve biomechanical environments and human eye physiology.
* BMND Lab at TTU is hiring postdoctal scholars and graduate students to work on developing electrochemical and impedence biosensors and integrated capillary zone electrophoresis systems. Please send a coverletter and CV to Dr. Kim.
