The investigation of microcirculation is an important task in biomedical and physiological research because the microcirculation information, such as flow velocity and vessel density, is critical to monitor human conditions and develop effective therapies of some diseases. As one of the tasks of the microcirculation study, red blood cell (RBC) tracking(More)
Encapsulating bacteria within constrained microenvironments can promote the manifestation of specialized behaviors. Using double-emulsion droplet-generating microfluidic synthesis, live Bacillus subtilis bacteria were encapsulated in a semi-permeable membrane composed of poly(ethylene glycol)-b-poly(d,l-lactic acid) (mPEG-PDLLA). This polymer membrane was(More)
The therapeutic efficacy of systemic drug delivery vehicles is limited by their ability to evade the mononuclear phagocyte system, preferentially localize to the target tissue, and negotiate past the endothelial barrier. In order to create a delivery vehicle capable of all these functions, we developed a biomimetic functionalization of synthetic particles(More)
