New thematic collection open for submissions – Miniaturized Sensors and Diagnostics

We are delighted to announce a new thematic collection in Lab on a Chip, focusing on miniaturized sensors and diagnostics, with Professors Yoon-Kyoung Cho and Xingyu Jiang as Thought Leaders.

Our journal is the home for cutting-edge reports about innovations in the “lab on a chip,” which by nature involves developments in microfluidics, sensors, optics, electronics, imaging, materials, mechanical components, and more. In this thematic collection, we focus on the critical importance of the sensor to the lab on a chip, whether the sensor relies on optical, chemical, electrical, or mechanical forces (or many others). This collection also focuses on how lab on a chip/sensor systems are being used to form the next-generation of miniaturized diagnostics, whether they are implantable, wearable, portable, or simply used in the lab.

This on-going collection is collated by Thought Leaders (and Lab on a Chip Editorial Board members) Yoon-Kyoung Cho, Xingyu Jiang and the Lab on a Chip Editorial Office. Are you interested in submitting? We welcome submissions of original research articles and reviews, which (after peer review) will be published and added to the online collection. Papers in this collection will receive extensive promotion throughout the submission period and also will be disseminated widely as a ‘flagship’ collection for the journal. If you are interested in submitting to the series, please get in touch with the Lab on a Chip Editorial Office at loc-rsc@rsc.org

This collection open for submissions now, with a deadline of February 1st 2022

Emerging Investigators in Microfluidics Conference (EIMC) · 20-21 July 2021

The online conference on Emerging Investigators in Microfluidics Conference (EIMC) will take place from Tuesday 20th to Wednesday 21st of July 2021, starting at 8:00 EDT- Boston Time/ 13:00h UTC/14:00h CEST-Amsterdam-Madrid.


 Emerging Investigators in Microfluidics Conference (EIMC)In the last 30 years, the field of microfluidics has transitioned from infancy to an established discipline with diverse applications being explored by an equally diverse community of scientists and engineers. The field has matured to a state where researchers can buy off-the-shelf microfluidic equipment (chips, pumps, flow meters etc.) and microfluidic componentry is standard within numerous different commercialized analytical and diagnostic devices. However, the continued development of the field depends on the supply of fresh innovative ideas and the nurturing of new leaders within the field.

This meeting aims to showcase work from the next generation of microfluidics researchers (specifically academics/researchers in permanent positions of less than ~6 years, and earlier career stages). The meeting will provide an opportunity to discuss recent developments in the field and develop future research opportunities as part of an overall aim to nurture and promote the careers of emerging researchers within the international microfluidic community.

The conference will run over two days and feature sessions focusing on three “hot” areas of microfluidics: synthetic biology (artificial cells, organ on a chip), portable devices (point-of-care diagnostics, in-the-field analysis), and bioanalysis (single cell analysis, nucleic acid analysis). Oral sessions will feature presentations by invited speakers, in addition to presentations selected from submission of abstracts. There will be a session for researchers to present posters, with additional networking opportunities.
