Siyang Zheng

Associate Professor of Bioengineering
My laboratory aims at developing and applying micro/nano technologies for biological and medical applications. On one hand, I am interested in studying miniaturized devices and systems that can be integrated with biological system in vitro and in vivo. On the other hand, I am eager to apply these technologies for fundamental biological research, clinic diagnosis and treatment. The research is highly multidisciplinary, interfacing at engineering, biological sciences, physical sciences, and medicine.
