The Microtechnology, Medicine and Biology Lab is focused on the novel and simple use of microscale physics and phenomena to create tools and methods to further biological and medical goals ranging from basic science to research tools to diagnostics. We are especially interested and engaged in applying the lab’s technologies to cancer, inflammation and multi kingdom interactions. The MMB lab is multidisciplinary and collaborative, working across disciplines and disease boundaries to create solutions that can be translated into widespread use. The MMB Lab’s location in the heart of the UW medical complex helps us stay focused on important and high impact biological questions and clinical challenges.
While we are currently engaged in projects in a range of fields with collaborators around the world, a few areas of emphasis are highlighted.
