Microfluidic Technologies to Manufacture Soft Matter Materials: Nano Seminar Series

Seminar: Seminars of interest | March 24 | 2-3 p.m. | 390 Hearst Memorial Mining Building

Prof. Patrick S. Doyle, MIT, Chemical Engineering

Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

In this talk I will describe how microfluidic technologies and various fields (light, temperature and flow) can be used to synthesize new functional soft matter materials.

I will begin by introducing Flow Lithography- a new way of interfacing lithography and microfluidics to “optically stamp” complex and functional microparticles. This technique takes advantage of the unique ability to finely...   More >

CEND (Center for Emerging & Neglected Diseases)

Emerging and neglected diseases are a group of debilitating and often deadly infections. As a group, these diseases are poorly understood and generally lack effective tools for prevention, control, and treatment. CEND Annual Symposium aims to strengthen connections between San Francisco Bay Area scientists working on infectious diseases of global health importance and the broader global health...   More >
