The Gary Smith Laboratory continues to make groundbreaking progress towards successful oocyte cryo-preservation and nano-fluidics platforms for successful sperm sorting. In collaboration with Dr. Shu Takayama, the Smith laboratory is extending the use of nano-fluidics to study sub-cellular signaling, in vitro fertilization on a chip, the effects of physiological and pathological fluid mechanical stresses on airway epithelial cells, microfluidic flow cytometry, cancer cell culture, and microfluidic embryonic stem cell cultures.
