Instrumentation and Bioanalytical Methods

Topical areas, some of which are still in an emergent phase, each with a representative list of faculty whose research is involved, include:

  • Novel flow-based analysis methods and instruments, including large particle analysis, high- throughput and large-volume analysis, and nanoparticle-based assays (Freyer, Graves, Shreve)
  • New sensing strategies based on biomolecular computing (Graves, Stefanovic, Carroll)
  • Enzymatic biosensor development and fuel-cell technologies (Atanassov, Ista)
  • Optical sensing strategies including fluorescence lifetime or intensity-based methods to study biomolecular interactions and chemical microenvironments in complex biological settings (Freyer, Shreve)
  • Biomolecular separation strategies based on new fluidic architectures (Brueck, Han, Petsev)
  • Raman and surface-enhanced Raman based sensing and analysis (Atanassov, Freyer, Han, Shreve)
  • Functional tissue scaffolds developed with 3D bioprinting, electrospinning, and hybrid technologies (Salas)
  • Macroscale mechanical testing of human tissue (Salas)
