Research in the Applied Genomics and Biotechnology lab focuses on the design, fabrication, and characterization of lab-on-a-chip platforms for genomic and proteomics analysis. Research activities include studies of the role of microRNA in regulation of DNA repair and development of integrated lab-on-a-chip methods and technologies for purification of and analysis of exosomes and small RNAs. The students working in the lab participate in interdisciplinary scientific research and acquire technical skills that prepare them for careers in the academia, pharmaceutical or biotechnology industry.
