Nano-microfabricated Medical Devices for Health Sciences (Graduate and Undergraduate Opportunities)

, , ,

Dr. Jian Gu, Associate Professor at the Center for Applied NanoBioscience and Medicine (ANBM) at the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix, has several research opportunities at both graduate and undergraduate levels. Dr. Gu’s research program focuses on bioengineering using nano/microscale structures and fluidic systems for a broad range of biomedical applications, including liquid biopsy for cancer detection, diagnosis, prognosis and personalized treatment; organ-on-chip platform for disease modeling and drug screening; paper-based microfluidic devices for sensitivity disease biomarker detection for point-of-need applications, as well as device and systems for disruptive bioassay logistics. This research opportunity is not only for Engineering students, but also for students who are majoring in biology and physical sciences (physics, chemistry, etc.).

Student qualifications/requirements: 

  • Self-motivated students with interests/experiences in organ-on-chip, microfabrication/microfluidics, biosensors and bioassays are encouraged to apply immediately.
  • Resume
  • Unofficial Transcripts

Lab/Center website: The graduate research opportunities will be through the UA COM-PHX’s Clinical Translational Sciences PhD program, which trains student to address both clinical and basic science aspects of translational research successfully. More info at

Stipend amount/hourly wage/volunteer position: The undergraduate research requires 10-15 hrs/week, with compensation for parking or hourly wage where applicable.

How to apply: Students who are interested should send an email to Dr. Gu at with their resume and unofficial transcripts.
