Our group conducts cross-disciplinary research aimed at the development and application of microfluidic technology for basic and applied biomedical research. The overarching theme of our research is the development of technologies for single-cell analysis, including live cell imaging, secretion assays, and genomics. These tools are being applied in fields of stem cell science, immunology, and cancer biology.
- How can we better harness natural immune responses to treat infection and disease?
- What is the contribution of genomic heterogeneity in cancer progression and responses?
- Can we predict and direct immune responses to create more effective vaccines?
