What do we do?

Everyday we work at the interface between ultrasonics, medicine, and biology. We have a rich lab culture that places equal emphasis on need-driven innovations and inquiry-driven discoveries. We deem that, to rationally leverage ultrasonics principles in biomedicine, it is imperative to establish a strong multi-disciplinary focus and integrate it with bold creativity.
