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:


Congrats to Ya and Chia for having their paper on Spatiotemporal periodicity of dislocation dynamics in a two-dimensional microfluidic crystal flowing in a tapered channel accepted at PNAS! Our work is also featured on Stanford news!

Our lab is part of the newly awarded $24 mil NSF Science and Technology Center for Cellular Construction! Our project is to develop a "Living Bioreactor"!

Congrats to Luke for being selected to be a fellow of the NIH Biotechnology Training Program!

Group social! We escaped the room (almost!)

Group drip painting at the beach!

We got awarded an NSF grant to study single-cell wound-healing using microfluidics-based microsurgery with UCSF!

Sindy gave an invited talk at the Microfluidics Gordon Research Conference!

Sindy received the prestigious NSF CAREER award!
