Pioneers of Miniaturisation Lecture 2014 – deadline 30th June!

Miniaturisation plays a significant role in our daily lives; devices are becoming smaller and smaller, and this trend is set to continue. Current micro and nanofluidic research encompasses many scientific developments and technologies that will increase our understanding of phenomena at the micro and nano scale and potentially have a huge positive impact on our lives in the future. The use of micro and nano fluidic technologies will impact on a diverse range of industries ranging from their use in motor cars, through health improvement applications and to their use in protecting national and environmental security needs.

At Lab on a Chip, we strongly believe in this technology and have been willing to show the necessary commitment and financial support to back the development of this research community. It is in this vein we present this award to honour and support the up and coming, next generation pioneers in this field of endeavour. So Lab on a Chip will again join forces with Corning Incorporated to award the ninth ‘Pioneers of Miniaturisation’ Lectureship at µTAS, including a certificate of recognition and a prize of $5000. The lectureship will be presented at the µTAS 2014 Conference in San Antonio, Texas.

Who should you nominate?

The award is for early to mid-career scientists (nominees must be no older than 45 by the closing date for nominations).

The award is for extraordinary or outstanding contributions to the understanding or development of miniaturised systems. This will be judged mainly through their top 1-3 papers and/or an invention documented by patents/or a commercial product. Awards and honorary memberships may also be considered. The awardee is required to give a short lecture at the µTAS Conference in the same year.

The 2013 Pioneers of Miniaturisation Lectureship was awarded to Shuichi Takayama, University of Michigan. 

See here for further information, including past winners.

Nominations to Lab on a Chip Executive Editor Harp Minhas by 30th June
