The over-arching mission of the research group is to develop methods for disease diagnosis and prognosis. However, our research efforts have included projects in a wide range of topics including materials synthesis, integrated optics, and live-cell imaging. In other words, our research is not perfectly linear.
To enable this wide range of topics, our group includes researchers with diverse academic and research backgrounds, and we have numerous ongoing collaborations, both at USC and at other institutions around the world. Financial support comes from several different agencies, industries, and foundations.
Within the Viterbi School of Engineering, we are affiliated with the Mork Family Dept of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science, the Ming Hsieh Dept of Electrical Engineering-Electrophysics, and the Dept of Biomedical Engineering. Within the Dornsife College, we are affiliated with the Chemistry Dept.
