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:


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!

Congrats to Lukas for being awarded a postdoc fellowship from Switzerland!

Sindy has been invited as faculty for the summer course on Physiology: Modern Cell Biology Using Microscopic, Biochemical and Computational Approaches at the Marine Biology Lab in Summer 2014!

Sindy is selected for the ACS Petroleum Fund New Investigator Award!

Our lab got awarded funding from the California Sea Grant!

Sindy was selected for the 3M Non-Tenured Faculty Award!
