Biomedical Micro/Nano Device Lab at Texas Tech University focuses on developing transnational biomedical platforms for lab automation, point-of-care diagnostics and biomimetic tissue engineering by using microfuidic and biosensing technqiues. By using microvalve and pumps system, an universal fluid processor enables the automation of the basic fluidic operations such as metering, mixing, washing, and reacting to achieve totally automated assays. For the biomarker detection, we have been developed the carbon nanotube (CNT) biosensor for pathogen detection, automated microfluidic immunoassay platform by combinding the complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS)-based biosensor for rapid and portable diagnostics. We also conducted several tissue engineering and biomechanics research projects such as measuring mechanical properties of trabecular bone, developing finite element models of bone biomechanics, as well as determining osteogenic response of osteoblast cell within 3-D scaffolds.
* BMND Lab at TTU is hiring a postdoctal scholar to work on developing BioMEMS devices for electrochemical/impedence mesurements. Please send a coverletter and CV to Dr. Kim.
