The Mace Lab uses a multidisciplinary approach—combining aspects of chemistry, materials science, biophysics, cell biology, and engineering—to study the properties of interfaces, develop new analytical assays and instrumentation, characterize materials, and solve outstanding problems in global health.  

Paper-Based Microfluidic Devices for Point-of-Care Diagnostics

Our research has elements of basic, applied, and translational science:

  • How do cells recognize and respond to different materials? 
  • Can we develop effective methods to diagnose diseases in resource-limited settings?
  • What is the underlying principle behind phase separation in aqueous solutions of polymers?
  • How are methods that we develop in the laboratory used by others?
