Nanoscale Interfacial Biology and Engineering Laboratory

Principal Investigator: 
Location: 
4113 A. James Clark Hall

The Nanoscale Interfacial Biology and Engineering Laboratory specializes in the development of new measurements capable of resolving key processes on the nano- to microscale in biology and medicine to aid in the design of more sensitive diagnostics and effective therapeutics. The group integrates nanoparticle-based imaging modalities and advanced 3D human tissue culture models to study the biomolecular and biophysical aspects of fundamental processes that contribute to the onset and progression of disease. The NIBE Lab has a particular interest in pulmonary diseases where researchers aim to understand the lung airway microenvironment in order to develop new biosensor devices that enable clinicians to more readily stratify patients, personalize clinical treatment regimens, and predict future pulmonary complications.
