Research Areas and Interests

1.  Cell mechanics

     Cell traction forces play a important role in nearly all aspects of cell biology, from cell migration to morphogenesis to cell proliferation. We develop a new TFM method to determine cell traction forces reliably, accurately, and efficiently. We investigate the interaction between single cardiac myocyte and the elastic substrate. We evaluate the migration force of tumor cell.

2.  Biomedical Micro/Nanotechnology

    We design and fabricate the microfludic chip for single cell analysis and other biomedical applications. We apply micro-fabrication and sensor technologies to investigate cell contractility and mechanotransduction mechanism.

3.  Simulation of molecular and cellular biosystems

    We aim at developing the bio-chemo-mechanical model of cell mechanics and adhesion. Such as adhesion cluster dynamics, signal transduction, cytoskeletal dynamics, and the extracellular matrix.
