About Us

We are an interdisciplinary experimental group that is developing small scale materials and devices for biological applications. ongoing research program can be broadly categorized into three core subject areas: transport phenomena, bioinspired systems design and fabrication, and single molecule biophysics. Although each core program consists of a distinct project, we would like to emphasize their synergistic...

  • BASTLab has awarded a two-year NIH NCI IMAT R21 grant to develop a bimodal nanopore sensor in collaboration with Prof. George Alexandrakis at the University of Texas, Arlington. Our sensor will be able to detect individual TCR-like antibody-pMHC complexes isolated from cancer cells derived from heterogeneous PDX tumor tissues and distinguish specific from non-specific binding, unbound protein and aggregates to establish targeted pMHC copy number per cell. (August 2020)

  • BASTLab will receive a three-year NSF CBET Biosensing grant to develop a new stacked nanosensor profiling technology for studying protein-receptor complex dynamics in collaboration with Prof. Georgios Alexandrakis's group at the University of Texas at Arlington. (May 2020)

  • Flagellated swimming microrobots featured in Microbiofluidics are highlighted on AIP Scilight. (April 2020)
