Lam Lab

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

We are an interdiscplinary group of physicians, engineers, and biologists. Congrats, Wilbur, on being honored with the W. Paul Bowers Research Chair! We are rapidly growing! 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!! Our founding lab members.
