|Physics and Astronomy Assistant Professor
Dr. Lin has a B.S. from the Department of Applied Physics at the Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics in China, a M.S. from the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the California State University in Fullerton and a Ph.D. from the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of California in Irvine, USA.
Dr. Lin’s research group develops microfluidic devices and systems for studying the migration of various cell types including immune cells, cancer cells, stem cells and other tissue cells.
Specific Biomedical Courses Taught/Teaching:
PHYS 4300/7440: Special Topics – Microfluidics for Biology (Winter 2010)
Current Biomedical Research:
Dr. Lin’s research group is currently working on three biomedical engineering related research projects. The first project is to develop a microfluidics-based strategy for selecting stem cells with defined migratory properties for potential applications in stem cell-based transplantation therapy. The second project is to develop microfluidics-based point-of-care systems for both research and clinical applications. The third project is to study electric field mediated cell migration for potential applications to improve wound healing.
