Silicon Prairie International Microfluidics Symposium

November 1, 2014

West Campus

University of Kansas, Lawrence, KS

Over 60 people gathered at KU for the Silicon Prairie International Microfluidics Symposium (SPIMS), an afternoon of outstanding short talks by eight experts in the field of microfluidics. SPIMS featured talks by:


Front row, L-R: Sabeth Verpoorte, Prajna Dhar, Cindy Berrie, José Alberto Fracassi da Silva
Back row, L-R: Dulan Gunasekara, Susan Lunte (Director of Adams Institute), Wendell K. T. Coltro, Mei He, Christopher Culbertson

Participants had an opportunity not only to hear about some of the latest research in microfluidics, but also to present their own research at what was an extremely interactive poster session with 18 posters given.  During the poster session, attendees were also provided tours of the Microfabrication and Microfluidics Core facilities in the Multidisciplinary Research Building on KU’s west campus.
