Featured Project

ultrathin membranes closeup
In Vitro Cellular Barrier Models

Using ultrathin membranes to enable the development of novel co-culture and barrier models as well as improved measurement and analysis of real-time barrier functions. The ultrathin nature of the membranes not only enables improved physiological processes but also optical, electrical and biochemical analysis of barrier properties. Furthermore, we can control and manipulate physical and biochemical cell-cell interactions by tuning membrane pore sizes and membrane thickness at the nanometer and micrometer scales.
