Microsystems Seminar

Microfluidics for 3D tissue engineering and personal health diagnostics

Samuel Sia
Associate Professor
Biomedical Engineering
Columbia University

I will discuss the use of microfluidic techniques for two different applications: controlling 3D microenvironments of cells and tissues, and for developing low-cost point-of-care diagnostics for use in U.S. and in developing countries.

1) A number of microfluidic techniques have been developed in our group for controlling the 3D microenvironments of cells and tissues to high resolution.  These techniques are useful for studying microvascularization in a number of organ systems, and for engineering implantable devices.

2) In the second half of the talk, I will discuss the development of lab-on-a-chip devices for personal health in the U.S., and for diagnosing diseases for global health.  I will discuss our lab's current efforts, in conjunction with partners in industry, public health, and local governments, to develop new rapid diagnostic tests for use in sub-Saharan Africa.

This Event is For: Graduate • Undergraduate • Faculty • Post-Docs • Alumni
