Lam Lab

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

We are an interdiscplinary group of physicians, engineers, chemists, and biologists. Competing to see who can eat the most Costco hotdogs - congratulations to Jordan! Congratulations to Erika and Greg! 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!!
