Welcome to IMB Lab

  • Single Cell

Integrated Microfluidic Biotechnology Laboratory at NUS focuses on developing integrated droplet-based microfluidic systems for performing bioassays in a high throughput manner. Millions of droplets encapsulating active materials such as bio-molecules and single cells can be generated within an integrated microfluidic platform, allowing a multitude of tests to be conducted and analyzed on a single chip

Hiring talented researchers

We are searching several postdoc research fellows (RFs) and undergraduate/master level research assistants (RAs) with background in clinical biology, cancer researches, animal experiments, biological assay, microfluidics, platform integration and analytical chemistry etc. Competitive salary could be offered. If you are interested in applying, please send your CV to Dr. Chia-Hung Chen: biecch@nus.edu.sg.
