Controlling Microfluidic Cell Cultures

Ongoing
NIST has taken advantage of recent technological advances to develop polymer microfluidic cell culture systems that provide a level of control over the cellular

Measurements for minimal cells

Ongoing
Technologies to manipulate biological systems have far outpaced our ability to design the function of those systems in a predictable way. This is, in part, a

Micro- and Nanoelectromechanical Systems

Completed
Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) are integrated devices with critical applications in sensing, timing, signal processing, and biomedical diagnostics, and

Molecular Physiology

Ongoing
The natural world is a magnificent place with observable, via measurement and inference, physical structures spanning at least 43 orders of magnitude in space

Nano-biophotonics for molecular imaging

Ongoing
Biophotonics is at the intersection of photonics and biology where light is used to image, detect, and manipulate biological materials. This project addresses

Sensing, Transport, and Simulation

Ongoing
The transport of particles through a region of space acquires an imprint of local information that enables sensing, such as detecting the presence of a
