The micro-nano-bio lab under the direction of Prof. Sindy Tang aims to develop innovative micro and nanoscale devices that enable precise manipulation, measurement, and recapitulation of biological systems, in order to understand the "rules of life" and accelerate precision medicine and material design for a future with better health and environmental sustainability.

Open Positions:
PhD students (multiple)

Postdoctoral Research Fellow – microfluidics & immunology. A joint postdoc position between the labs of Sindy Tang, Stephen Galli, and Kari Nadeau, is immediately available in the area of microfluidics and food allergy. We are looking for a candidate with a background in microfluidics for blood-based lymphocyte analysis. This position has exciting opportunities for learning human immunology, including gene expression and epigenetic analysis, with a focus on allergy and anaphylaxis.Drs. Galli and Nadeau are among the world’s foremost experts in allergy and immunology. The project will be performed in close collaboration with the Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy and Asthma Research at Stanford. For details, please see here.
