Our research combines materials synthesis and optical device development for disease diagnostics/therapeutics. Our group includes researchers with diverse academic and research backgrounds, and we have numerous ongoing collaborations with researchers in the medical school. Financial support comes from several different agencies, industries, and foundations. Descriptions of specific projects are located in the research section.
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. and the Microbial Systems Institute.
