Research Interests

The major interests of the Liu group are as follows:


  • Developing analytical tools for analysis of real samples
  • Exploring portable devices for high-throughput and cost-effective assays of biomolecules
  • Miniaturizing analytical instrumentation to perform complex chemical analysis
  • Studying the fundamental aspects of mass transport in small channels


About our Research Group

Our research is focused primarily on microfabricated systems for bioanalysis. We are especially interested in developing and implementing new separation technologies onto microfluidic devices for DNA and protein analysis.
