“3D printing … has the potential to revolutionize the way we make almost everything.”
-President Barack Obama, State of the Union Address


Similar to the way in which the shift from vacuum tube-based technologies to solid-state components transformed the field of electronics, the shift from traditional top-down fabrication methods (e.g., soft lithography) to emerging bottom-up 3D printing processes could enable unprecedented advancements in both chemical and biological fields.  In the BAM Lab, we leverage breakthroughs in Additive Micro/Nano Manufacturing, Cell Mechano/Physicobiology, Integrated Micro/Nanofluidic Circuitry, and Hydrodynamic Controls of Living Cells to pioneer a new generation of 3D Printing-Enabled Biomimetic “Organ-on-a-Chip” Living Systems with physiologically-relevant architectures, length scales, biophysical characteristics, materials, and functionalities.
