Current Research:

The purpose of this research is to determine the elasticity of adherent cells in suspended state with an atomic force microscope, which can be used to differentiate the physiological state of the cell on the basis of elasticity. This information will be used to validate flows of different cell types through microfluidic devices based on cell stiffness.
