Lab on a Chip presents prestigious prizes at MicroTAS 2018

The µTAS 2018 Conference was held during 11th-15th November in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.  Simon Neil, Executive Editor of Lab on a Chip, attended the conference and announced the prestigious Lab on a Chip awards which include the Pioneers of Miniaturization Lectureship (in partnership with Dolomite Microfluidics), the Widmer Young Researcher Poster Prize and the Art in Science competition (in partnership with NIST). All three competitions received many fantastic submissions and we are delighted to present the winners, below:

“Pioneers of Miniaturization” Lectureship

Professor Sunghoon Kwon (Seoul National University) won the 13th “Pioneers of Miniaturization” Lectureship, sponsored by Dolomite and Lab on a Chip. The “Pioneers of Miniaturization” Lectureship rewards early to mid-career scientists who have made extraordinary or outstanding contributions to the understanding or development of miniaturised systems. Professor Sunghoon Kwon received a certificate, a monetary award and delivered a short lecture titled “Miniaturization for Personalised Medicine” at the conference.

Art in Science Competition

Lab on a Chip Executive Editor Simon Neil and Greg Cooksey from the National Institute of Standards Technology (NIST) presented the Art in Science award and a cake featuring the winning image at the Royal Society of Chemistry booth to Nam-Trung Nguyen for his entry “The Green Planet”. This award aims to highlight the aesthetic value in scientific illustrations while still conveying scientific merit.

The image was taken with a colour USB camera. The liquid marble is made of a water droplet containing green fluorescent beads and coated with Teflon powder.

 

Widmer Young Researcher Poster Prize

The Widmer Young Researcher Poster Prize was awarded to Richard Cheng from the University of Toronto for his poster on “In Situ Delivery And Patterning Of Skin Cell Containing Biomaterial Sheet Using A Microfluidic Bioprinter”.
