Prof. Gary Friedman, PhD

 

My research is focused on applications of electrical and magnetic technologies to biology and medicine. This includes the subjects of non-thermal atmospheric pressure plasma for medicine, magnetic manipulation of particles for drug delivery and bio-separation, development of miniature NMR sensors for cellular imaging and carbon nanotube cellular probes. In addition, I have interest in irreversible behavior of complex magnetic, biological and economic systems. Specifically, I'm investigating hysteresis in such systems.

The ongoing projects are:

  • non thermal atmospheric pressure plasma applications in medicine (sponsored by DARPA, Coulter Foundation, Drexel University major research initiative)
  • magnetic manipulation in bulk fluids, granular media and tissue (sponsored by NSF, Pennsylvania Nano-Technology Institute)
  • carbon nanotube cellular probes (sponsored by KECK Foundation)

 

Facilities available to our group include photolithography facility at the Drexel’s ECE department, characterization facilities at Drexel’s Material Engineering department, nearby University of Pennsylvania microfabrication laboratory and our own laboratory equipped with specialized fluorescence microscope and other tools and instruments. Depending on the needs of our research, we also use Microfabrication Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Chicago and Nanofabrication facility at the Pennsylvania State University, State College campus.
