B. Top-Down Fabricated Biomolecular Sensors

We are working on the development of top-down fabricated electronic biomolecular sensors for the rapid and label free detection of biomolecules. Such devices can be used for label free DNA and protein detection for profiling cells in real time, nano-systems biology applications, and nano-medicine, and can be fully integrated with giga-scale CMOS technology.

Key ongoing projects are:


A. Integrated Lab on Chip for Detection of Cells and Microorganisms
B. Top-Down Fabricated Biomolecular Sensors
C. Integration of Living Cells and Microstructures
D. Synthetic Biology and Building with Cells
