Jiménez Lab Biology * Medicine * Engineering

Our laboratory studies the interaction between fluid flow and biology, by integrating fluid dynamic engineering, cellular and molecular biology.  Body fluids or biofluids, such as blood, lymph, and cerebrospinal fluid continuously interact with cells in the body eliciting biochemical and physical responses.  Our research seeks to elucidate the fluid flow characteristics and fluid flow-dependent biomolecular pathways relevant in medicine.

Nanomaterials

Nanomaterials are materials with at least one of their three dimensions limited to nanometer, that is, a scale that quantum effects emerge. Two-dimensional (2D) materials is a class of nanomaterials with outstanding electrical, mechanical, chemical, and bio-transducing properties. Using methods based on chemical vapor deposition, 2D materials can be prepared in large scale (~ m) and high quality with tunable strength, transparency, disorder density, and electron transport properties.

Health Information Visualization and Exploration (HIVE) Lab

We use eye-tracking approaches to analyze how physicians and nurses interact with health information technology. We are able to see what information they pay attention to, and ignore, as they make clinical decisions or complete processes. These findings can be used to guide the redesign of electronic health record systems and related technologies. Read More...
