Single Cell Studies and Biomechanics
We apply nanoscale tools to address challenges in cell biology and therapeutic development. We leverage core technologies originally developed for Probe-Based Nanomanufacturing and MEMS applications to study nanomaterial-mediated drug delivery and cellular pathways, mechanics, and adhesion. Whereas typical in vitro studies are limited to cell populations, these broadly-applicable tools enable multifaceted interrogation at a truly single cell level.
