Prof. Heikenfeld is director of the Novel Device Lab www.ece.uc.edu/devices, in EECS with joint appointments in Materials Science and Biomedical Engineering.
NDL's mission is to create disruptive technological innovations through highly multidisciplinary research in electrofluidics and biosensors, spanning fundamental science to more applied work through industrial partnerships. Our research foci are not participatory, but rather to play a globally leading role in any endeavor we pursue. Furthermore, NDL has the practical knowledge, facilities, and a strong track-record for rapidly transforming novel concepts into commercially viable prototypes. NDL is also a founding member of the NSF Center for Advanced Design and Manufacturing of Integrated Microfluidics (CADMIM), lead founder for the Ohio Center for Microfluidic Innovation (OCMI).
