The Maryland MEMS and Microfluidics Laboratory (MML) is an interdisciplanary group of researchers developing
microscale technologies for applications in biology and the biomedical sciences.
Research areas include
scalable synthesis of lipid nanomedicines,
microfluidic-enabled nucleic acid diagnostics,
single cell analysis for immunodynamic studies,
and microscale platforms for advanced aerobiology.
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
The MML resides within the
Department of Mechanical Engineering
and is a member laboratory of the
Fischell Institute for Biomedical Devices
The MML is also affiliated with the
Dept. of Bioengineering
Dept. of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
together with the
Center for Nano Manufacturing and Metrology
Maryland Center for Integrated Nano Science and Engineering
the Center for Energetic Concepts Development
the Greenebaum Cancer Center
and the Maryland Robotics Center
