[Conference] Microfluidics Congress - July 24 - 26, 2017
Date: Monday July 24 - Wednesday July 26, 2017
Location: TBD, in PHILADELPHIA
Host: Global Engage
Overview (From Link above):
Microfluidics is a rapidly developing area of research, and scientists are continually discovering the wide range of possibilities the technology can provide. At the intersection of engineering, physics, chemistry, nanotechnology, and biotechnology, microfluidics is revolutionizing the way patients are diagnosed, monitored and treated,and is unlocking the potential for reduced reagent consumption and thus, cost.
The conference will examine the latest developments in the technologies and techniques being used for progressing medical research, as well as the challenges and future of microfluidics.
Some of the topics to be covered:
Isolation and analysis of CTCs
3D printing of microfluidic devices
Commercialization and venture capitalism
George Whitesides, Woodford L. and Ann A. Flowers University Professor, Department of Chemistry & Chemical Biology, Harvard University. Where From Here? An overview of current trends in the field of microfluidics, and focus on some technologies that are developing particularly rapidly now, and speculation on what might come next.
Daniel Chiu, A. Bruce Montgomery Professor of Chemistry, Endowed Professor of Analytical Chemistry, and Professor of Bioengineering, University of Washington. Topic: Digital PCR, POC diagnostics, and our self-digitization microfluidic chip
Abraham Lee, William J Link Professor and Chair, Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of California Irvine will also make a keynote address: Microfluidic Circulatory System for Biomedicine
