Hakho Lee’s Lab

Sensitive, fast and cost-effective diagnostic systems can have far-reaching implications in medicine and life sciences. My laboratory specializes in developing such sensors by bringing together ideas and techniques embodied in physics, engineering, and computation. Our research is guided by core principles – thorough understanding of underlying sensing mechanisms and providing robust engineering solutions. We further apply developed sensors to quantitatively analyze living systems. These efforts are key requisite for finding new biomarkers for early intervention as well as for developing targeted therapies.
