Welcome to the website of Professor Masoud Agah's research group at Virginia Tech. Research at VT MEMS Lab currently centers on the development of three-dimensional micromachining techniques, micro gas analyzers for environmental and healthcare applications, biochips for cell analysis, cancer diagnosis, and cancer treatment monitoring, and biochips for pathogen detection in water.
- Improved self-assembled thiol stationary phases in microfluidic gas separation columns
- Zebra GC: A mini gas chromatography system for trace-level determination of hazardous air pollutants
- Opposing Biomechanical Trends of Normal and Cancer Cells in Response to Pulsed Stresses Provide a Biomarker for Single-Cell-Level Identification
- Dr. Agah delivered a keynote speech at NEMB 2015 conference on single-cell biophysical cues for cancer progression.
- VT MEMS research on micro gas chromatography and the recent GC-on-Chip effort has been highlighted on NSF Website, VT Daily News Outlet, and several on-line science/technology news outlets.
- Diana Nakidde successfully defended her MS thesis on 3D dielectrophoresis. She will join Intel Inc. Congratulations Diana!
