Who We Are
Principal Investigator (MIT)
PhD, Biological Engineering, Electrical Engineering
Professor Jongyoon Han received the B.S. degree in the department of physics of Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea, in 1992, and M.S. degree in physics from the same department in 1994. In 2001, he received his Ph.D. from the School of Applied and Engineering Physics, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY. Before joining MIT as an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering in 2002, he was a research scientist at Sandia National Laboratories, Livermore, CA where he studied protein microfluidic separation systems. In 2003, he received a second MIT faculty appointment as Assistant Professor of Biological Engineering. He was the recipient of 2003 National Science Foundation (NSF) – Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award, and 2009 Analytical Chemistry Young Innovator Award from American Chemical Society.
The Han research group at the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) at MIT focus on micro and nanofabrication technologies applied to molecular separation and concentration, biosensing, cell manipulation and separation, neuroscience and technology, and desalination.
Microfluidics and Nanofluidics
AMR IRG projects include the detection and profiling of antimicrobial resistance of low-abundance pathogens in biofluids and the surveillance and monitoring of artemisinin resistance in malaria.
