Nano Bioengineering

Engineering in micro- and nanoscale for single-cell biology

A cell is the smallest unit of life, and approximately 37 trillion cells are assembled to form an individual human body. Our group aims to understand the dynamics of individual cells at single-molecule resolution using novel bioengineering tools that leverage micro- and nano-scale biophysical phenomena and uncover how the coupling of multi-cellular dynamics hierarchically leads to the emergence of individuality.
