BioMEMs and Nanotechnology
BioMEMS and Nanotechnology are promised to revolutionize biotechnology and biomedical device industries, improve patient care, and reduce medical expenses in the 21st century. Modern semiconductor fabrication technologies and novel micro/nano technologies are used to make devices under 100 micrometers in size. Current main research focuses include lab-on-chip devices for in vitro diagnosis, implantable biomedical microdevices, nanoscale biosensors and actuators, microdevices and micro-PIV for cancer research and treatment, nanoparticles for bioimaging and drug delivery, molecular motor incorporated hybrid system, and microfabrication of biodegradable scaffolds for tissue engineering.
