Work Summary

Dr. Jiang is an Associate Research Professor with the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, College of Engineering, University of Arizona. Dr. Jiang develops integrated microsystems, including microfluidics, Lab-on-Chip, Organs-on-Chips, microOptics, flexible optical interconnect and microsensors.

Research Interest

Dr. Jiang’s research interests broadly lies in micro/nano technology applications to advance engineering, manufacturing, biology, and medicine. One of Dr. Jiang's research focus is development of human models of Organ(s)-on-Chips in collaboration with multidisciplinary teams of colleagues. These Organs-on-Chip microsystems closely mimic in vivo environments, implement an integrated approach and enable investigations in a well-controlled manner. They are used to study roles of tissue/organ interactions, mechanisms in tumor progression, invasion, metastasis, and dormancy, as well as disease treatments for targeted therapy and personalized medicine.
