About Gergana Nestorova

I am an Assistant Professor at the School of Biological Science and a Program Chair of the Molecular Sciences and Nanotechnology Program at Louisiana Tech University. My current research is focused on the design, fabrication, and characterization of lab-on-a-chip platforms for genomic and proteomics analysis. These include the development of integrated microfluidics platform for direct purification and analysis of exosomes and RNA. My research group consists of both undergraduate and graduate students that participate in interdisciplinary scientific research and acquire technical skills that prepare them for careers in the pharmaceutical or biotechnology industry.
