The Biological Surface Engineering and Microfluidics Laboratory at Northeastern University headed by Prof. Shashi Murthy was established in January 2006.

The primary focus of our research is the design of microfluidic devices for applications in clinical diagnostics and regenerative medicine. These devices are fabricated using technology originally designed for the semiconductor industry and are capable of handling and manipulating small volumes of fluids (down to tens of microliters) and small numbers of cells. Our expertise is in functionalizing microfluidic channels with a broad range of biomolecules and achieving high-resolution cell separation with these simple and easy-to-use devices.

Prof. Murthy Named to Analytical Chemistry Features Panel
Membership to this Panel is by invitation and its role is to identify authors and topics for featured and review articles that this journal publishes as well as guide the overall direction of the journal.

Murthy Lab Spin Out Named Finalist in MassChallenge and Wins International Space Station Prize
MassChallenge is the world's largest startup accelerator competition. Quad Technologies was among 26 finalists selected from over 1,200 entering startups as well a recipient of a CASIS prize that will enable Quad to perform experiments at the International Space Station. Press releases: The Salem News; Boston Business Journal; Northeastern News; Boston Globe.

Prof. Murthy Appointed Director of New Center
Prof. Murthy has been appointed Founding Director of the Michael J. and Ann Sherman Center for Engineering Entrepreneurship Education at Northeastern University.
