The Mace Lab uses a multidisciplinary approach—combining aspects of chemistry, materials science, biophysics, cell biology, and engineering—to study the properties of interfaces, develop new analytical assays and instrumentation, characterize materials, and solve outstanding problems in global health.

​Can we develop effective methods to diagnose diseases in resource-limited settings?

 

How do cells recognize and respond to different materials? 

 

How are methods that we develop in the laboratory used by others? 

Our research has elements of basic, applied and translational science:
