Professor Nancy Allbritton of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will present
"Micro-Assays for the Single Cell"
on August 30, 2017 at 4:10 PM in Neville Hall, Room 003.
The ability to assay and manipulate the microenvironment of cells or small cell clusters is one of the most promising applications for microengineered systems. The laboratory is developing a suite of technologies based on microengineered platforms and microfluidics to manipulate and analyze living cells. We have developed simple, inexpensive fabrication methods utilizing photoresists, plastics, and hydrogels for cell-based array. The fabricated devices include detachable, deformable or biodegradable array elements designed for cell analysis and sorting.
