Bioanalytical ChemistrySensors3D CultureSurface chemistry


We are a group of interdisciplinary scientists interested in developing new materials, model systems, and analytical platforms. In particular, we are interested in: new surface chemistries capable of tuning the electronic and reactivity of carbon-based electrodes; new surface chemistries to immobilize enzymes or lipid vesicles into arrayed platforms for high-throughput screening; new methods of preparing and studying cellular behavior in 3D environments, whose gradients are readily manipulated; high-throughput platforms to study small molecule metabolism.
