Dr. Sally A. Peyman
Dr. Sally Peyman is a University Academic Fellow, an early career position held jointly between the Schools of Physics and Astronomy and Medicine at the University of Leeds. Her research interests lie in an interface of biophysics and medicine. In particular, the use of microfluidic devices for biomedical and biophysical applications, such as the fabrication and testing of nanomedicines and theranostic agents towards improving the treatment of diseases. Single cell analysis and biomechanics in the study of disease progression in cancers and most recently, the building of tumor-on-chip platforms for high-throughput drug screening and disease studies.
The School of Physics and Astronomy has a newly built Rapid Prototyping Lab for the design and fabrication of prototype soft polymer microfluidic devices.
