(Professor Liwei Lin --ME)

The main goal of this project is the development of water-powered, osmotic micropumps for bioassay and drug delivery applications. Osmosis is applied to design micropumps fabricated by MEMS-compatible processes for the integration with other microfluidic devices. The innovative osmotic micropumps will be able to serve as clean, compact, and inexpensive power sources for bioassay and drug delivery systems.
