Send your nominations for the Pioneers of Miniaturisation Lectureship to Lab on a Chip Managing Editor Harp Minhas by 22nd July!
Miniaturisation plays a significant role in our daily lives as all our handheld devices become smaller and other larger devices become handheld or desktop based and this trend is set to continue. 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 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 the Lab on a Chip Journal will again join forces with Corning Incorporated to award the eighth ‘Pioneers of Miniaturisation’ Lectureship at µTAS, including a certificate of recognition and a prize of $5000. The lectureship will be presented at the µTAS 2013 Conference in Freiburg, Germany.
