EMBL Microfuidics 2018 Conference will be held at EMBL Heidelberg, Germany between 15th-17th July 2018
“The EMBL Microfluidics Conference 2018 aims to bring together top researchers in the field and to spark scientific exchange, also across different disciplines. The latest Lab-on-a-Chip technologies and applications will be presented, which should be of major interest for experts as well as scientists looking for a first glance at this exciting new technology.”
Over the past years microfluidic approaches have been used for a variety of applications, including nucleotide sequencing, functional genomics, single-cell/single-molecule studies and diagnostics. Many of these applications, including next-generation sequencing devices, have been revolutionised by miniaturisation, paving the way for global gene analysis and hence transforming biology. Small objects such as cells, or even discrete parts thereof, can be exposed to unique conditions, facilitating entirely novel approaches in modern biology and chemistry.
Confirmed speakers include Lab on a Chip Associate Editors Petra Dittrich (ETH Zurich) and Hang Lu (Georgia Institute of Technology), Lab on a Chip Editorial Board member Piotr Garstecki (Polish Academy of Sciences) and Lab on a Chip Advisory Board members Amy E. Herr (UC Berkeley) and Dave Weitz (Harvard University).
