Microfluidic Single Cell Analysis of Signaling Dynamics

We want to understand how biological processes work from an engineers perspective. To enable this quest we develop high-throughput quantitative measurement technologies based on microfluidics and optics. Our research lies at the interface of Biology, Engineering and Physics.
