The Gaitas Laboratory

Welcome to the Gaitas Lab

The Gaitas Lab focuses on developing micro- and nano- devices for biomedical applications and on studying biophysical effects at the micro- and nano-scales. We use atomic force microscopy and scanning probe microscopy for single cell and tissue studies. We study subcellular temperature changes and develop tools for microfluidics applications such as patch clamping. We also study next generation sequencing devices such as nanopores.

Dr. Gaitas has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and DOD.
