Biological Separations

We are developing new membranes as well as capture and release technologies to isolate exosomes, bacterial outer membrane vesicles, and other extracellular vesicles from a variety of biofluids. In addition, we are working towards developing a truly portable and wearable hemodialysis membrane.
