Biomedical microdevices

Impact: Research Topic/Theme (at group level)

Description of impact

In collaboration with biological, biomedical, and clinical groups, we develop biomedical microdevices to study and understand the behavior of cells, tissues, and organs. This work is aimed at learning about health and disease, and eventually developing novel therapies and medicines. Specifically, we develop organs on chips as in-vitro disease models focusing on brain and cancer, we study mechanical properties of single cells, and we develop technologies for in-vitro diagnostics.
