Dr. Lu’s research at Tech lies at the interface of engineering and neuroscience. Her group uses engineering principles to develop modeling tools and fabrication tools to design and manufacture unique BioMEMS (Bio Micro-Electro-Mechanical System) devices to answer neuroscience questions that are difficult with conventional techniques. She is interested in how neurons behave and function, how genes and environment together determine diseased states, and how genetic, chemical, and physical interventions can possibly treat these diseases in both lower organisms and mammalian systems. Applied to the study of fundamental biological questions, these new techniques allow us to gather quantitative data about complex neuronal systems. Her group is interested in signal transduction networks of the neurons (e.g. gene expression levels), activities of the neurons in the network (e.g. neuronal firing patterns), and the resulting complex behaviors of the animals (e.g. locomotion). In the same way, Dr. Lu plans to use these techniques to aid the discovery of therapeutic molecules and the development of therapeutic strategies in neurodegenerative diseases.

Co-Chairing the special symposium on Micro & Nano Fluidics.
