Lam Lab

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

As part of Dr. Lam’s NSF CAREER grant (Understanding the Contraction Biomechanics of Platelets at the Single-Cell Level) an educational K-12 outreach program was created. Specifically, teaching math and science to hospitalized children using their own disease as the motivation and springboards for learning. Undergraduate students from the Biomedical Engineering Department at Georgia Tech have created interactive teaching modules following GA educational standards for math and science directed towards in-patient and clinic children at CHOA Egleston.
