Physics and Astronomy Assistant Professor


Educational Background:

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.


Biomedical Experience:

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.
