Developing life-enhancing applications through research at the micro-scale
We develop innovative technological concepts and fabrication methods by carrying out research in our Microfab/lab, often in collaboration with industrial, biomedical, or clinical partners. Practical applications of the group’s research range from organ-on-a-chip systems for cancer and brain research, point-of-care diagnostics, wearable health sensors, water and air quality monitoring and purification, lithography machines, displays, and brain-inspired computing, to soft microrobotics.Read more
