Hakho Lee's Lab

Biomedical Engineering Program

Highly sensitive, fast and cost-effective diagnostic systems can have far-reaching implications in medicine and life sciences. The primary goal of our laboratory is to develop such platforms by bringing together ideas and techniques embodied in physics and engineering. We further seek to apply the developed platforms to rigorously and quantitatively analyze living systems, with the ultimate aim of promoting human well-being. To achieve these goals, we are guided by the following principles:
Many new diagnostic technologies have resulted from these efforts, and we are actively pursing their clinical translations.
