Koh Laboratory

Intimately Bio-integrated Biosensors

Our research is focused on overcoming obstacles of conventional biosensors. We seek to exploit science and engineering approaches that bring solutions to improve chemical and physical biocompatibilities of biosensors. These research areas have great potentials in the developments of ultimate biocompatible bio-sensing systems that intimately integrate with a living system, improve analytical performance of medical devices, and thus provide new technologies to understand human physiology for clinical, point-of-care, and diagnostic/prognostic biomedical applications.

In the Koh Lab, we aim to induce novel biosensor research in the combination of fundamental studies and pioneering engineering efforts that offer multi-disciplinary research opportunities. Our current research focuses on developing breathable biosensors utilized by conventional photolithography, transfer printing and electrospinning, and advancing electrochemical biosensors that function in wearable form while providing a real-time information of biomarkers.
