Research: 

The Hui Lab is focused on leveraging microtechnology to understand and improve human health.

Spatial Cell Biology - How does the spatial organization of cells within tissue determine the emergent biological function? Our platforms allow dynamic manipulation of tissue organization during cell culture, enabling unconventional experiments and new insights into cell-cell interaction. We are engaged in problems such as tumor angiogenesis during cancer progression, and the determination of cellular fate in stem cell development.

Global Health Diagnostics - How can we bring hospital laboratory tests into the homes of families living in limited-resource settings? We are building computers that run on air pressure instead of electricity. We envision automated laboratories on a microchip that can be cheaply stamped out of plastic.
