Xiaolong Luo received his B.E. from Zhejiang University (China) in Mechanical & Electrical Engineering in 2001, M.S. from Temple University in Mechanical Engineering in 2003 before he obtained his PhD in Bioengineering from the University of Maryland in 2008. He is currently a research associate at the Institute for Bioscience and Biotechnology Research (IBBR) at the University of Maryland.
Microfabrication and packaging, bio-microelectromechanical systems (bioMEMS), microfluidics, lab on a chip, biofabrication, cell-cell communication, tissue/organ on a chip, bilayer lipid membrane (BLM), and surface enhanced Raman Spectrometry (SERS). Currently, he focuses on biofabrication and its novel applications in microfluidics. Specifically, he develops microfluidic platforms for signal-guided assembly of biomolecules and cell populations, and studies metabolic pathways and cell-cell communications in microfluidics.
