For more information regarding this event, please email Dr Geraldine Clinton-Bailey, National Oceanography Centre at .

Event details

This one day meeting aims to bring together UK researchers developing and applying microfluidic systems for chemical and biochemical analysis. The meeting will cover all types of devices (lab-on-chip, digital microfluidics, paper microfluidics, total analytical systems etc.) and concern application to all forms of molecular analysis (biomedical, environmental, forensic, quality control etc.). It will provide an opportunity to discuss recent developments in the field and develop future research opportunities as part of an overall aim to nurture and promote the UK microfluidic and analytical communities. Providing opportunities for PhD students and early career researchers to present their work. Sessions will feature presentations by invited speakers, in addition to presentations selected from submission of abstracts. Abstract submission is now open please see below. There will be opportunities during lunch and refreshment breaks to view the posters and exhibition, with additional networking possible during a wine reception at the end of the event.

Speaker information

Professor Joshua B. Edel ,Imperial College,Prof. Joshua Edel received his PhD on the development of single molecule detection within microfluidic systems at Imperial College London in 2003. He then performed postdoctoral research in nanobiotechnology at Cornell University within the School of Applied and Engineering Physics. In 2005 he was awarded a research fellowship in single molecule biophysics at the Rowland Institute at Harvard University. In July 2006 he joined Imperial College London within the Department of Chemistry and Institute of Biomedical Engineering as a lecturer.

Dr Alexander Edwards ,University of Reading,With a background in fundamental immunology combined with expertise in biochemical engineering, Dr Edwards is an interdisciplinary researcher focused on solving current and future healthcare challenges using an engineering science approach that combines a range of fields from biology, biochemistry, chemistry and physics. He works at the interface between academic technology discovery and industrial development and have experience of both fundamental research and the commercialisation of new technology.
