Welcome to Microfluidics & Nanomechanics Lab. (uFNM Lab.), School of Mechanical and Advanced Materials Engineering/School of Nano-Biotechnology and Chemical Engineering, Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST). The long term research goal is to create novel micro-/nano-fluidic technologies that develop a broad spectrum of proteomic and cellomic research.
Near future research directions/interests of microfluidics and Nanomechanics Lab. are summarized as follows.
- Microfabricated chemical/electrical/mechanical interface systems for synthetic biology.
- Cellular BioMEMS for cell culture, sorting, patterning and cancer cell metastasis including the study of embryo development.
- Micro‐/nanofluidics for (bio-)molecule detection, separation and concentration.
- Biophysical studies and mechanistic modelings of the responses of cells and proteins to mechanical and electrical disturbances.
- Applications of microfluidic technologies to quantifying the properties of biomolecules (e.g., DNA, proteins, cells, etc).
- Nanotechnological applications of biomolecular motors and microtubules systems for stand‐alone, self‐contained and efficient micro Total Analysis Systems (μTAS).
