Acousto-Bioelectronics Lab

At Acousto Bioelectronics Lab, a highly collaborative Research Lab located at Temple University, we are interested in a range of biomedical applications of MEMS (BioMEMS) and nanotechnology. This includes a variety of devices and microsystems to address important clinical problems. Our group collaborates closely with physicians in order to transfer the technology to the clinic. Learn more about our research and areas of study below. For more information see the published literature or contact us.
