About the Mechanobiology and Microfluidics laboratory

The Mechanobiology and Microfluidics laboratory focuses on pioneering artificial models of human blood vessels and heart valves using advanced microfabrication and microfluidic technologies.

Through these unique and state-of-the-art models, we systematically elucidate the molecular mechanisms that control cellular responses to hemodynamic forces, which consequently lead to the development of cardiovascular diseases. 

Our research is interdisciplinary and at the interface of biology, physics, engineering, and medicine, making it suitable for students with backgrounds in both disciplines of biomedical science and biomedical engineering.

With the rising number of Australians affected by diabetes, heart disease and stroke, the need for research is more critical than ever.
