Lam Lab

Integrating microtechnology development, experimental hematology & oncology, and clinical medicine

We are an interdiscplinary group of physicians, engineers, and biologists. Enjoying a lab lunch at Fox Brothers! Enjoying pasta during a lab lunch at Figo! What can we say... dry ice is exciting! Our first lab publication at Georgia Tech and Emory was for JoVE. Great job Erika!! We've grown a lot in three years!
