Arum Han

Dr. Han is a Professor of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the Chancellor’s EDGES Fellow and Presidential Impact Fellow of the Texas A&M University. He also holds joint appointment in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, is a Graduate Faculty of the Texas A&M Health Science Center, Faculty of the Texas A&M Institute for Neuroscience, and Faculty of Toxicology. His research focuses on development of microfluidic, lab-on-a-chip, and organ-on-a-chip systems that enable unique biological experiments at high throughput and high accuracy. He has pioneered the area of high-throughput microfluidics for microbiology applications. Developing high-throughput technologies that enable complex multi-step biological assays involving mammalian cells, microorganisms, and viruses are also some of his key accomplishments. He has also pioneered the area of organ-on-a-chip systems for feto-maternal interface and preterm birth research. He currently serves as the Editor-in-Chief for the journal Biomedical Microdevices.
