Dr. Konry’s laboratory at Northeastern University is focused on developing novel Bio-MEMS approaches to advance point of care diagnostics, cell culture and drug screenings. She has developed Lab-on-a-Chip (LOC) devices that integrate several laboratory functions such as real time monitoring of target clinically relevant analyte, proteomics, genomics, cell-cell interactions as well as cell secretion and surface monitoring of single cells on a micro-chip. Her single cell project was awarded with several industrial grants, NIH, Tufts CTSI and DFCI/NEU Joint Program in Cancer Drug Development grants. For analyzing immune-tumor cell interactions in dynamics with single cell resolution, she received a competitive BD Biosciences immunology research award and was nominated as Phase 1 Finalist of Follow That Cell Challenge/NIH.
