After receiving his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Alabama in Huntsville and a brief time working as an Air Force contractor, Dr. Resnick went on to NASA Glenn Research Center to help develop a microscope which is currently aboard the International Space Station and more recently, perform biomedical research at CWRU under the auspices of the National Institute’s of Health Mentored Quantitative Research Program.

In setting up my laboratory at Cleveland State, I thought about how to introduce students to many essential measurement techniques and lab skills. My research activity has two main tracks: the role of sensory cilia in cellular mechanosensation and optical probes of matter.  Experimental tools we use include epithelial tissue culture and electrophysiology, microscopy and laser tweezers, microfluidics and analytical modeling. Example systems under investigation include renal and airway epithelial tissue as well as complex fluids.  I am also developing the capability to perform spectroscopic reflectometery and scatterometry in the context of directed energy systems.   There are innumerable opportunities for students to participate and perform original research.

I was here, then here, then here, then here, then here, now here

  1. I really enjoy the material you have on your page it extremely has helped me out a lot thanks

  2. Hi, love your epi-photomics!
    How do you decapsulate the chips? You mention acids!

    • Thanks for your interest! My decapsulation procedure involves soaking in hot (about 160C) sulfuric acid for several hours, washing with methanol and then water, to remove almost all of the epoxy. A final soak in hot (70C) nitric acid cleans it all up.
