    About FRUITS Lab

    The main research theme in FRUITS Lab. is focused on the development of a lab-on-a-chip system with a fundamental understanding of bio-molecular interactions and fluidic behavior in micro/nanoscales and its smart implementation by utilizing basic engineering tools. “Lab on a Chip” is an emerging research area where new discoveries and innovations are realized through multidisciplinary thinking and miniaturization to solve today’s most challenging problems in human health, energy, and environment. Beyond the classic definition of a device that can integrate multiple laboratory functions on a small-sized chip, Lab on a Chip has advanced the fundamental understanding of biological systems, broadened the basic knowledge on the molecular interactions in nano-scales, and translated into innovative designs and engineering of novel materials, devices, and processes in order to provide paradigm-shifting solutions to the complex issues in physics, chemistry, biology, and bioengineering. It is expected that there will be more and more examples of Lab on a Chip that go beyond chip-scale test devices and provide real impact in clinics and industry. 

    • Fully Integrated Lab-on-a-disc for Biomedical Applications
    • Novel Microfluidic Tools for Cell Biology
    • NanoSciences and Technology for Advanced Diagnostics and Environmental Monitoring
