The biological/non-biological interface system is an important cornerstone for the fabrication of a wide range of biomedical devices. Platforms as diverse as lab-on-chip and point-of-care diagnostics, 3D tissue culture scaffolds, organs-on-chips, implants and antimicrobial surfaces all rely on the effective interaction of cells and/or bio-recognition elements (proteins/peptides, enzymes, oligonucleotides, etc.) with non-biological surfaces. Design and engineering of micro/nano engineered interfaces provide powerful tools to study biological phenomena at micro and nano scale and to develop novel technologies for diagnostics, therapeutics and preventing the spread of infectious diseases. I will present an overview of our research on micro/nano-scale design of novel surfaces and coatings and their integration into in vitro systems such as lab on chip, flexible sensing interfaces and antimicrobial coatings as well as in vivo applications to develop efficient medical devices such as anti-thrombogenic and antimicrobial catheters and vascular grafts.
