We are an interdisciplanary group of researchers developing microscale technologies for applications in biology and the biomedical sciences. Research areas include scalable synthesis of nanomedicines, microfluidic diagnostics, high throughput biomarker analysis, and microscale platforms for probing lipid membranes and ion channels. MML researchers also develop silicon and piezoelectric MEMS technologies for medical robotics and beyond. Microfabrication is performed using dedicated facilities in the MML cleanroom, and in the UMD FabLab.

The MML resides within the Department of Mechanical Engineering, and is affiliated with the Dept. of Bioengineering and the Dept. of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. We are a member laboratory of the Center for Nano Manufacturing and Metrology, the Maryland Center for Integrated Nano Science and Engineering, the Center for Energetic Concepts Development, the Greenebaum Cancer Center, and the Maryland Robotics Center.
