Research Centers & Groups
Bio-interfacial Engineering and Diagnostics Group
The Bio-interfacial Engineering and Diagnostics Group’s research focuses on quantitative characterization of biomolecular interactions, with technological connections to diagnostics for medical and fundamental biology applications. The group seeks to dissect the fundamental equilibrium and kinetic aspects of biomolecular reactions at surfaces and in solution, elucidate the role played by the molecular organization, and apply this understanding to advance bioanalytical technologies.
Hybrid Nanomaterials Laboratory
We are interested in studying transport phenomena (mass, heat and charge transfer) at the nanoscale with a target of developing devices and schemes that can efficiently convert and store energy. Our research relies heavily on developing novel nanostructured hybrid materials (both model systems for fundamental studies and application oriented engineered systems) as well as integrating them into functional devices.
Institute for Engineered Interfaces Laboratories
The new Institute for Engineered Interfaces (IEI) Laboratories will promote a cross-disciplinary approach to research. Faculty members from the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, the Center of Soft Matter Physics, the molecular Design Institute, as well as the medical and dental schools, work together in the IEI on joint projects focusing on colloids and membranes, sensors and diagnostics, and organic/inorganic interfaces.
Laboratory for Biomechanics, Mechanobiology & Regenerative Medicine
We study the interactions between mechanobiological cues and musculoskeletal systems with the long-term goal of developing novel biophysical, pharmaceutical, and stem cell-based interventions to improve musculoskeletal health.
Montclare Lab for Protein Engineering and Design
We focus on engineering macromolecules. We aim to predictably design or engineer artificial therapeutics, biocatalysts, scaffolds and cells.
NYU NanoFab Cleanroom
Home to world-class micro- and nanofabrication and metrology tools, which meet or exceed the demands of academic and industry users alike. With over ~ 2000 sq. ft. of Class 1000 space, the NanoFab is appropriately equipped to meet the present and future demands for device fabrication.
Organic Electronics Laboratory
The fundamental properties of electrically conducting polymers pave the way for modern applications. The Organic Electronics Lab maintains its interest in the solution and solid properties for electroactive macromolecules. The novel applications include solar cells and health diagnostics.
