Professor Donald Sirbuly leads a team of Engineers at the University of California San Diego in developing Nanofiber Optic Force Transducers. The miniature device is about 100 times thinner than a human hair and is capable of detecting forces from swimming bacteria and also hear the beating of heart muscle cells. Professor Sirbuly's work could lead to a new instrument for studying cellular behavior.
Professor Sirbuly's work has also been recognized in the San Diego Tribune. To read the article, please reference the link below:
