A biophysics lab that investigates biological spatial organization on the mesoscale (10 nm - 10 microns) and the role of mechanical cues in cellular decision-making. Current research directions include tissue mechanobiology, the organization of the DNA inside the nucleus, and single-molecule measurements of transport through biological pores and channels.
The group's research is at the intersection of experimental condensed matter physics and nanoscale science and technology. Their efforts involve local probes, nanoassembly, collective phenomena, spin/charge manipulation, reduced-dimensional systems, and single quanta physics.
The Micro/Nano Systems and Technology Graduate Certificate offers a plan of study that focuses on the miniaturization technologies that have important roles in materials, mechanical, and biomedical engineering practice, in addition to being the foundation for information technology.
The Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford (MIPS) was established as an inter-disciplinary program to bring together scientists and physicians who share a common interest in developing and using state-of-the-art imaging technology and developing molecular imaging assays for studying intact biological systems.
The Stanford Nanoelectronics Group was founded in September 2004 by Professor H.-S. Philip Wong. The group's research interests are in nanoscale science and technology, semiconductor technology, solid state devices, and electronic imaging.
The Nanoscale Materials Science Graduate Certificate offers an opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to understand the present and potential applications of these rapidly developing nano-materials technologies.
