Prof. Zbigniew Brzózka, D.Sc. Ph.D. Eng. – Group leader
The current research interests focus on:
Miniaturized analytical systems (Lab-on-a-Chip) for monitoring of bioanalytes. Emphasis is now also being laid on the applications of polymer microfabrication technologies to microchemical analysis, i.e. the integrated microchips with optical and electrochemical detection principles dedicated to early diagnostics of genetic diseases as a novel approach to reliably diagnose patients, and protect them from mistaken diagnoses and disorder progress. Another field of interest of the partners will be the development of polymeric chips for human cell culture in unique, in vivo-mimicking microenvironment where studies of cellular growth and responses to external factors are conducted for drug screening and toxicology applications.
