Dr. Michel Godin seeks to develop novel sensing technologies for the detection of biological material, from biomolecules (proteins, DNA, etc.), to viruses, bacteria and larger cells. By manipulating and analyzing biological samples within microfluidic and nanofluidic environments, it is possible to address some of the limitations imposed by conventional techniques used in the diagnosis of disease, in rare cell detection (cancer), in pathogen detection (food safety) and in environmental monitoring. While driven by these applications, this research also enables new quantitative measurement capabilities which provide unique insight into the biological world.
