Synopsis

Microfluidics is a rapidly developing area of research, and scientists are continually discovering the wide range of possibilities the technology can provide. At the       intersection of engineering, physics, chemistry, nanotechnology, and biotechnology, microfluidics is revolutionizing the way patients are diagnosed, monitored and treated,and is unlocking the potential for reduced reagent consumption and thus, cost.

The conference will examine the latest developments in the technologies and techniques being used for progressing medical research, as well as the challenges and future of microfluidics. 

Some of the topics to be covered:

  • Point-of-care diagnostics
  • Organ-on-a-chip
  • Droplet microfluidics
  • Microfabrication
  • Isolation and analysis of CTCs
  • 3D printing of microfluidic devices
  • Single-cell analysis
  • Commercialization and venture capitalism
