WELCOME to the BioMicroSystems Laboratory (Hoµ Lab)@ NTU, Singapore!

Established in 2018 and located at Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine (LKCMedicine) Novena campus, we are interested in exploring new frontiers and applications in biomedicine using microfluidics and biomimetic organ-on-chip technologies for advancing healthcare and precision medicine. As engineers, we collaborate extensively with biologists and clinicians in this interdisciplinary translational research to understand disease pathophysiology and develop novel biomarkers for disease diagnostics and risk stratification.
