Chan Lab

The Chan Lab is part of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University. The goal of our lab is to use nanoscale engineering to detect and manage infections and microbiome health. Housed in the Petit H. Parker Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience (IBB) on the Georgia Tech campus, we are part of a vibrant, collaborative research community comprised of engineers, scientists, and clinicians. Graduate student and UROP recruitment is always ongoing. For those interested in exploring opportunities in the lab, please email me with an attached CV at leslie.chan[at]
