Principal Investigator
Sindy K.Y. Tang, Ph.D.
Dept. of Mechanical Engineering
Stanford University


We are a group of experimentalists dedicated to solving problems at the interface of engineering, soft matter, and biology! The tool we use is microfluidics. Applications of our work include biochemical sensing and diagnostics, water and energy sustainability.

Open Positions. We are seeking highly motivated postdocs and students in broad areas of engineering, applied physics, biophysics, and analytical chemistry. Please email Prof. Sindy Tang your full CV indicating your background, research interests, and publications.

We acknowledge support from the following sponsors:


Sindy will be giving an invited talk at the 248th ACS National Meeting in the "Bioanalytical Microfluidics: Applications To Quantitative Biology" session on 8/10/2014!

Our lab got awarded a grant from the Woods Institute for the Environment to quantify Ascaris for sustainable agriculture and in the fight against parasitic intestinal diseases in collaboration with Prof. Craig Criddle (Stanford Environmental), Steve Luby (Stanford med) and Scott Smith (Stanford med)! See the news release here!

Our lab got awarded a seed grant in collaboration with Prof. Guillem Pratx (Stanford Radiation Oncology) from the Stanford Chemistry, Engineering & Medicine for Human Health!

We will be teaching at Woods Hole Physiology course 6/23 - 7/5!

Our lab, in collaboration with the Robinson Lab in Immunology, got awarded a seed grant from the Stanford Center for Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence and Translation (CCNE-T), a U54 grant funded by NIH/NCI!

Our invited paper on the Review and analysis of performance metrics of droplet microfluidics systems is published on Microfluidics and Nanofluidics!

Our paper on the break-up of drops in a concentrated emulsion is featured on the front cover of Soft Matter!
