The Bioanalytical Chemistry for Medicine and the Environment (BCME) Lab studies chemical mechanisms underlying asthma, allergy, infectious diseases, urologic conditions, kidney disease, rheumatic conditions, transgender health, and environmental exposures. We develop analytical chemistry tools to advance medicine, including biomimetic microfluidic systems for integrated cell culture and analysis and at-home sampling tools for diagnostics (blood, saliva) and environmental monitoring. We collaborate closely with clinicians to investigate how chemical processes are linked to patient symptoms. A related emerging area of research within our group centers on developing culture models and molecular isolation tools to study microbial signaling in the environment and agriculture.
