  • Background
    Dr. Moon’s general research interests consist of micro/nanosciences, bioMEMS/bioengineering, and microfluidics. Micro/nanosciences explore how various physical phenomena, forces and characteristics of materials play different roles on the small scale than they do in conventional macroscopic situations. BioMEMS seeks to employ MEMS technology as a vehicle for biomedical analysis and diagnosis, as well as various other biological applications by providing a platform for handling biological objects efficiently for assorted purposes. Microfluidics enables small amounts of liquid to be controllable, which casts light on diagnosis of high impact disease, drug delivery, and proteomics. She has developed novel method to handle small amount of liquid using electric filed in digitized manner (digital microfluidics). In this method, electrical field modulates the surface tension of liquid segments to control their generation and movements. Her digital microfluidics has been used in several biological and non-biological applications, including high-throughput sample preparation for proteomic research, specially, Matrix-assisted-laser-desorption-ionization (MALDI) method. Her interests in BioMEMS/bioengineering and microfluidics will give shape to diagnostic technology for high impact diseases such as cancer and HIV. The ability of microfluidics to handle small volume of liquid to enables high throughput proteomics, which identify proteins and are important to disease and cure identification. Point-of-care devices using microfluidic technology is investigated as well. Recently, her interests expanded to magnetic nanoparticles for various cellular applications.
