Liang Tang, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor

Department of Biomedical Engineering

Areas of Teaching Interest:

  • Bioinstrumentation
  • Immunoassay and Biosensors
  • Nanotechnology and bioMEMS in Biomedical Research

Areas of Research Interest:

Our group has great interest in advancing and integrating nano-biotechnology and biomolecular engineering for diverse clinical applications. Specifically, the primary research focus includes development, characterization and application of nano-biosensing system for rapid medical diagnostics and mechanistic probes into various diseases such as cardiovascular diseases. We are also interested in applying bio-imaging techniques coupled with cardiac electrophysiological study in order to investigate the mechanisms underlying cardiac arrhythmias and sudden death.

  • Nano-biotechnology: bioinstrumentation, implantable biosensor, biomedical optics
  • bioMEMS: microfluidics, Lab-on-a-chip, microfabrication
  • Cardiovascular research: electrophysiology, arrhythmias, sudden death
