EMBL Conference: Microfluidics 2014

23 Jul 2014 - 25 Jul 2014 - Heidelberg, Germany



Bookmark and Share


The 2014 EMBL Microfluidics Conference will bring together top researchers in the field, presenting the latest Lab-on-a-Chip technologies and applications which facilitate novel approaches in biology.

Microfluidics is a quickly growing, highly interdisciplinary field at the interface of physics, engineering, chemistry and biology. Over the past years microfluidic approaches have been used for a variety of applications, including chemical synthesis, nucleotide sequencing, functional genomics and single molecule/ single cell/ single organism studies. 

In addition, working on the pico- to nanoliter scale not only allows a high degree of parallelization, but as well offers superb spatiotemporal control. Small objects such as cells or even discrete parts thereof can be exposed to unique conditions, facilitating entirely novel approaches in modern biology and chemistry.

The 2014 EMBL Microfluidics Conference aims to bring together top researchers in the field and to spark scientific exchange, also across different disciplines. The latest Lab-on-a-Chip technologies and applications will be presented, which should be of major interest for experts as well as scientists looking for a first glance at this exciting new technology.
