Dr. Eklund’s research interests involve designing and implementing extracellular biosensors for monitoring cell metabolism in various environments. Sensors are based on electrochemical or fluorescent signals that are used to measure multiple analytes concurrently in real-time (glucose, lactate, oxygen, pH, Ca2+, K+, etc.). He also is exploring the electrodeposition of thin films of tantalum metal from ionic liquids for coating of medical implants.
