E1767: Microfluidics 101: Physics and biology on a chip in Splash! Fall 2011 (Oct. 29 - 30, 2011)
Biology has gotten complicated. This isn’t to say it was ever simple. But once upon a time, studying the immune system, the brain, or infectious disease meant asking a few questions about how large numbers of cells looked or behaved under different conditions. Today, biologists are interested in mapping entire systems of diverse protein-coding genes and cell-types, and in making exact, quantitative measurements of each. In this class, you will be introduced to the physics and biology involved in designing, fabricating, and operating devices that do all of this on a coin-sized elastic chip.
