Boukany group

The Boukany research group focuses on fundamental and applied topics in soft living matter, with a major emphasis on controlling and understanding the dynamics and transport of DNA into living cells. To do this, we apply cutting-edge micro/nano-fluidic technologies to manipulate and control the DNA and biomolecules for both fundamental biophysical studies and applications, such as non-viral gene therapy, biosensing and cancer therapy. We will employ both experimental and theoretical approaches in our research to understand fundamental issues in a wide variety of applications ranging from micro/nanofluidics, DNA biophysics, molecular rheology to gene therapy.
