Microscale Life Sciences Center - An NIH Center of Excellence in Genomic Science (CEGS)

Deirdre Meldrum

Arizona State University

The Meldrum lab is a leader in single-cell physiology and gene expression measurements in human cells and cell lines using lab-on-chip technology.


Brad Cookson

University of Washington

The Cookson lab's research revolves around the idea that a greater understanding of immune responses will provide novel insights into host-pathogen interactions.


Brian J. Reid

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

The Reid lab focuses on clonal evolution, cancer prevention and cancer risk prediction in Barrett's esophagus.


Lawrence Wangh

Brandeis University

The Wangh lab invented LATE-PCR: A New Paradigm for DNA Amplification and Analysis.


Alex K-Y. Jen

University of Washington

The Jen lab utilizes molecular, polymeric, and biomacromolecular self-assembly to create ordered arrangement of functional materials for photonics, opto-electronics, nanomedicine, and nanotechnology.


Lloyd W. Burgess

University of Washington

The major thrust of the Burgess group is the investigation of guided wave optics and micro fluidics for development of integrated analysis systems for real-time biomedical and environmental monitoring applications.

Mary Lidstrom

University of Washington

Research in Dr. Lidstrom's laboratory is focused on molecular and metabolic manipulations of methylotrophic bacteria, with the long-term goal of developing environmentally sound and economically viable alternatives to current chemical production and cleanup strategies.


Babak Amir Parviz

University of Washington

The Parviz group works on developing tools to study biology at the single cell level, ultra-low-cost genome sequencing technology, using biomolecules for self-assembling engineered structures, and hybrid biological/solid-state systems.


Karl F. Böhringer

University of Washington

The Böhringer lab does research on micromanipulation and microassembly, as well as biomedical implants and bioMEMS for single-cell genomics and proteomics.
