Since 2005, we have led an effort to understand the interaction between inorganic and biological materials, while maintaining a significant ceramics processing research. We have been advancing understanding in surface functionalization, electrochemistry, materials development for chemical sensing and biosensing, and translated fundamental knowledge into functional materials and devices. Our focus is to bring forward novel fabrication techniques and materials that will enable large scale production of biosensing and chemical sensing devices with high sensitivity, reproducibility and repeatability.
