Microfabrication and Organs-on-a-Chip Team
Left to right: Phil Samson, Allison Price, Dmitry Markov, Jennifer McKenzie, Erik Werner, Kevin Seale, Cheryl Cosby, John Wikswo, Virginia Pensabene, David Schaffer, Libby Johnson, Ron Reiserer, Sarazen, Haile, Frank Block, and Don Berry; Seated: Vanessa Allwardt
The Wikswo team focuses on the development of microfluidic devices and instrumentation to study hybrid silicon/biological systems and organs-on-a-chip.
Electrochemical Sensors and Biosensors Team
The Cliffel team is part of the Chemistry Department at Vanderbilt University and the Vanderbilt Institute for Integrative Biosystems Research and Education. We focus on electroanalytical measurements in nanoscale and on biological systems, as well as synthesis and characterization of gold nanoparticles.
Biophotonics, Biomechanics and Toxicology Team
Left to right: Alexander Auner, Monica Lacy, Ty McCleery, Sarah Crews, Shane Hutson, and David Mashburn
The central theme of biophotonics is the interaction of biological systems with light. The Hutson team is involved in research projects that investigate the physical mechanisms of laser ablation and laser-microsurgery. We also use these tools to probe the mechanics of biological systems.
Structural Mass Spectrometry and Omni-Omics Team
Left to right: Sarah Stow, Katrina Leaptrot, Nichole Lareau, , Kelly Hines, Cody Goodwin, Jody May, Jay Forsythe, John McLean, Rafael Montenegro and
The McLean team focuses on the design, construction, and application of advanced technologies for structural mass spectrometry, in particular, for studies in structural proteomics, chemical biology, and biophysics.
