About Us


Welcome to our lab at the School of Biomedical Engineering at Shenzhen University.

Our lab is dedicated to developing miniaturized in-vitro diagnostic tools using emerging micro/nano-technologies. Specifically, we leverage our expertise in microfluidics, MEMS, nanomaterials, and soft matter, and develop innovative blood coagulation tests and interruptive single-cell sequencing technology.

Located in the Greater Bay Area of China with a fast-growing biotechnology community, our lab is made up of a group of enthusiastic young scientists with the aim of developing fast, accurate, and affordable clinical tests. To learn more, please visit Members.
