News & Events

Welcome to MINE-Lab@CityU!

The research efforts in our group include the integration of advanced fabrication methodologies and biological concepts at different scales. We focus on the design, fabrication, and use of advanced micro/nano biosystems for (1) high-throughput drug/genetic screening technologies, (2) interaction between novel materials and neural systems, (3) neural network engineering at different scales from single cell, tissue level to whole animal.
