Labs and Groups
Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
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.
Flow Chemistry with Microsystems Laboratory
Our mission is to train students in chemical and biomolecular engineering first principles through invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Our preparation of the next generation of problem solvers, global leaders who make positive contributions to society, is accomplished by nurturing their critical and independent thinking, aptitude to innovate, and soft skills.
Hybrid Nanomaterials Laboratory
Our research investigates the transport phenomena in new and novel classes of nanostructured hybrid materials that have promise for optoelectronic and thermoelectric energy conversion. Our group has expertise in colloidal synthesis, advanced characterization, and device implementation of such materials.
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.
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.
Polymer Light Scattering and Light-Induced Crystallization Laboratory
We investigate the ways that laser light can passively and actively interact with materials. We use depolarized light scattering to passively characterize the micron-scale grain structure of block copolymer materials, which influences their viscoelastic, adhesive, optical and electrical properties. We use lasers to actively induce the nucleation of supersaturated solutions, providing novel ways of controlling crystal size, morphology and polymorphism.
