Microfluidics / lab-on-a-chip

This is an interdisciplinary training course for PhD students from analytical chemistry, biochemistry, microengineering, nanoscience, optics, materials science, medicine, pharmacy and other science and engineering disciplines.

Microfluidics (and its extension nanofluidics) is currently in a state of rapid growth. Microfluidics opens up opportunities in both research and business. It provides tools for genomics (the human genome was sequenced using microfluidic separation systems), proteomics, metabolomics, drug discovery, environmental analysis and medical diagnostics.
