Research Work:

  • Development of a painless drug delivery system using microneedles. The project utilized photolithography, wet etching, electroplating, and other MEMS processes.
  • Development of micropumps for on-chip fluidic control for biosensors and protein spotting applications. Work was focused on PDMS-based peristaltic and permeation/diffusion pumps.
  • Development of highly arrayed continuous flow immunoassays in a microfluidic device.
  • Development of an ELISA assay for detection of antibodies to drug treatments given to Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients.
