FY 2020

6. Prof. Kim 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.

5. 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)

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

3. BASTLab will receive a two-year NIH NIGMS R21 grant to develop a high throughput analytical sensor with the capability of analyzing a single nanoscale particle/vesicle ~25 times through automated recapture in collaboration with Prof. Prashanta Dutta’s group at Washington State University. (April 2020)

2. BASTLab has kick off a collaborative research project with the Applied Materials, Inc. to develop new materials for the fabrication of solid-state nanopores to advance single molecule and single cell analysis. (April 2020)

1. Prof. Kim will give an invited lecture in the research workshop of the Israel Science Foundation on Micro-Swimmers and Soft Robotics, which will be held on February 3-5 in Haifa, Israel. His talk is to introduce ongoing research about single particle propulsion using symmertry breaking and flagellar functionalization. (February 2020)
