Welcome to the Higgins Lab

We specialize in biomedical processes and technologies that involve biotransport phenomena, including:

(1) Stabilization of biomolecules, cells, tissues, and organs by cryopreservation or drying, with applications in pharmaceuticals, cell therapy, tissue engineering and organ transplantation.

(2) Microfluidic devices for processing biological fluids, with applications in blood purification and pathogen inactivation.
