Rationale & Projects
Life is fundamentally characterized by order, with an orchestra of biochemical reactions running in the compartments within, on and between cells. These reactions have to occur at the right place and at the right time so as to manifest healthy functioning. We work on new methodologies with the aim to provide greater insight into such interactions at different length and time-scales. A particular focus currently is on precise tumor profiling.
open space microfluidics
We work with several academia and industrial partners in collaborative projects. Much of our collaborations so far have been centered around Europe (ETH-Z, EPFL, Institute Curie, Technion, University Hospital Zurich, Bern and Frankfurt). With the lab moving to Vancouver, we are super excited to work and establish collaborations with colleagues at UBC, Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute and the BC Cancer Research Institute.
