Integrated Microsystems for Biological and Medical Applications

报告题目:Integrated Microsystems for Biological and Medical Applications

报告时间:2021年7月8日 (周四) 8:30-10:00


报 告 人:刘新宇


In this talk, I will give an overview of the research activities in my Microfluidics and BioMEMS Laboratory (MBL) at the University of Toronto. With a unifying theme of Microsystems Engineering for Life Sciences, my MBL team investigates the design and fabrication of novel microfluidic devices and micro/soft robotic systems to address pressing problems in biology and medicine. Leveraging our interdisciplinary expertise in microdevices and robotics, our current research is along three strategic directions: i) paper-based microfluidics for disease diagnostics; ii) robotic micromanipulation of cells and small organisms; and iii) soft/flexible sensors and robotics. I will first present several designs of paper-based microfluidic biosensors and highlight their practical uses in rapid diagnosis of diseases such as HIV, hepatises, and COVID-19. Then, I will briefly showcase how we develop integrated robotic micromanipulation systems and apply them to basic biological studies. Finally, I will describe our recent work on developing hydrogel-based ionic skins with multimodal sensation and a worm-based living soft microrobot.
