Welcome to the Biomedical
Microdevices Laboratory homepage
Within the BML, we seek to develop fundamentally
enabling MEMS-based process technologies,
devices, and instruments that address critical
needs in public health, facilitate scientific inquiry,
and advance understanding in areas of medical
relevance. We invite you to peruse our site and
welcome further inquiries.
