Lam Lab

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

Human endothelial cells extending (Red: f-actin, green: tublin, blue: nuclei) Novel microfluidics coated with endothelial cells enable cell-cell interaction studies Distinct proteins are presented to platelets, changing spreading and adhesion  Clinical-scale prototype transduction platform (Proxime) capable of transducing 1 billion cells simultaneously Human T cells transduced with a GFP-encoding lentiviral vector in a Proxime chip Delivery of an encapsulated hemostatic drug (red) mediated by platelet (blue) contraction on the microcapsule (green) surface. An interdigitated microelectronic device that applies low voltage (<9V) electrical field augments hemostasis in vitro and in vivo. Smartphone app for non-invasive detection of anemia using only patient-sourced photos Platelets respond to the geometry of locally patterned proteins The first measurements of single platelet contraction, measured with an AFM

Our interdisciplinary laboratory, comprising clinicians, engineers, and biologists, is dedicated to applying and developing micro/nanotechnologies to study, diagnose, and treat blood disorders, cancer, and childhood diseases. This unique "basement to bench to bedside" approach to biomedical research is enabled by our lab’s dual locations at the Emory University School of Medicine and the Georgia Institute of Technology and our affiliations with the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta hospitals.
