Biomimetics Research Group taking inspirations from nature and using those cues to answer complex biological problems. Biomimetics group imitates nature and transforms the knowledge into new biotechnological products and useful technologies. The ultimate goal of our group is to develop “bio-inspired” technologies and products which have applications in fields ranging from bioengineering to biomedical systems.
Our research group has interdisciplinary research themes in general research areas of biochemistry, biology, materials science and bioengineering;
Dıagnostıc Tools for Bıomedıcal Applıcatıons
Recent developments in diagnostic technology exhibits great potential to diagnose and monitor various diseases. In particular microfluidics and Point-of-Care (PoC) diagnostic devices are easy-to-use, inexpensive, rapid, sensitive and specific standalone platforms. Current developments in surface chemistry techniques and micro/nanofluidic technologies target challenges integrated with PoC diagnostics.
We develop micro-engineered sensor systems that accurately diagnose the disease at clinical resolution. We combine biomimetic approach with materials science, surface chemistry and microfabrication technologies to develop next generation PoC diagnostic tools.
