Wilbur Lam, MD
Wilbur Lam has a unique background as a physician-scientist-engineer trained in pediatric hematology/oncology and bioengineering. The interdisciplinary Lam laboratory, located at Emory and Georgia Tech, includes engineers, biologists, biophysicists, and clinicians, and serves as a unique “one-stop shop” in which we apply and develop nano/microsystems (MEMs-based platforms, microfluidics, etc.) to study and diagnose childhood cancer and blood diseases. The Lam lab’s specific interests related to oncology involve the cellular mechanics of leukemia, cancer metastasis, microenvironmental interactions that drive oncogenesis, and cancer thrombosis as well as the invention and translation of novel diagnostic devices.
