Welcome to the Biosensors Research Lab

We are a multidisciplinary research group at the University of Manitoba developing lab-on-a-chip devices for biological and biomedical applications. We take engineering approaches to design and fabricate sensors that are able to detect and manipulate cells and biomolecules. On-chip electrical measurement  is one of our prime research areas enabling label-free detection of biological phenomena. Find more about our research in our Research page. To join our group, check the openings in the “Join Us” section below.
