Research Interests

Dr. Onur Tigli's primary research interest is in the field of bioMEMS and biomedical nanotechnology to develop smart point-of-care diagnostic tools for cancer. In this field, his current research deals with the development of integrated micro/nano systems for rapid and comprehensive blood, serum and other bodily fluid analysis. This work involves the use of micro/nano fabrication methods, microfluidics, micro/nano sensor and actuator development, and their respective applications in clinical medicine, neuroscience, genomics, proteomics, cell and tissue engineering. In addition to the biosensor development, he also conducts research for monolithic lab-on-a-chip solutions by employing nanotechnology and MEMS toolsets. Dr. Tigli also conducts research in the field of MEMS scale energy harvesters for self-sustained electronic systems. In this context, his interest is in integrating smart sensors and bioMEMS with conventional CMOS technology for implantable medical device (IMD) applications.
