NYUAD Mechanical Engineering Labs

Laboratory for Immuno Bioengineering Research and Applications

LIBRA focuses on the mechanobiology of single immune cells and the implications of microenvironmental cues in downstream immune biology. We are interested in depicting the mechanisms of these signals and further investigate the possibilities of modulating the immune outcome using bioengineering strategies.

Micro- and Nanoscale Bioengineering Lab

The research in the Micro- and Nanoscale Bioengineering Group at NYUAD lies at the interface between biology, physics, and engineering. More specifically, our research is focused on applying microfluidics and nanofluidics to a broad range of bioscience challenges.   

Advanced Microfluidics and Microdevices Laboratory

The Advanced Microfluidics and Microdevices Laboratory (AMML) is working with various aspects of miniaturization and integration in biology, life sciences, and medicine, which includes the conception, engineering, and utilization of novel micro and nanotechnologies to manipulate, stimulate and study biological objects.      

Laboratory of Applied Nonlinear Dynamics (L.A.N.D.)

Laboratory of Applied Nonlinear Dynamics (L.A.N.D.) focuses on understanding various nonlinear phenomena and applying this understanding to resolve issues related to power generation, manufacturing, microelectromechanical systems, and origami structures.

The Laboratory of Thermal Optics, High Speed Flows, and NanoFluids

Current interests of the group include molecular detection methods by optical resonance shift in microresonators, interferometry, plasmon resonance, light matter interaction, properties and structures of fluids with magnetic nano-particles, fire dynamics, and thermal-fluid analysis.
