Microfluidics Boot Camp
Two Sessions: July 29-August 2, 2013 or August 5-9, 2013
Our boot camp is designed to familiarize researchers with microfluidic/micro-fabrication technologies. Attendees will learn to make microfluidic devices by soft lithography and perform several experiments using them. The course consists of lectures and hands-on laboratory experience.
Course Instructor: Saurabh Vyawahare (Director, Microfluidics Laboratory, Princeton Physical Sciences-Oncology Center) has several years of experience training students and post-doctoral scholars in microfluidic technologies. Dr. Vyawahare received his doctorate in Applied Physics from Caltech in 2006. Prior to joining the Princeton Physical Sciences-Oncology Center, he managed the Microfluidic Foundry at the Kavli Nanoscience Institute, Caltech.
Location: The Microfluidics Boot Camp will be held in Jadwin Hall at Princeton University, Princeton, NJ.
Registration: Pre-registration for the class is required due to small class size. To register please email Melissa Aranzamendez. The Boot Camp is subsidized by the Princeton Physical Sciences-Oncology Center and funding is provided by the National Cancer Institute.
