题目：Microfluidics for Biology and Engineering
Microfluidics has attracted more and more attention since the last two devices for both fundamental research and applications due to their unique advantages over macro scale fluidic devices such as small size, high density of parallelization, fast mass and heat transfer rate, mass producibility and so on. The applications of microfluidics range from physics, chemistry to biology, and cover many industries, from material development, aerospace, environmental monitoring to medicine. One of the highly researched areas is in biology and engineering, including biosensors for sending chemical and biological substances, organ on a chip for drug screening, medical diagnostics, biomaterials development and so on. This talk will cover:
(1) the key element of microfluidics and its development;
(2) developments of microfluidic devices for point of sampling and point of care sensing and organ on a chip applications;
(3) application of microflows in high efficiency heat transfer and its application. The key microflow control techniques such as magnetic microbeads trapping, magnetic and acoustic microstreaming will be presented. Examples of chemical and biological detections (e.g., chemical warfare agents, viruses, cancer biomarkers, cell analysis) will be discussed.
Professor Yonggang Zhu is currently a professor at Harbin Institute of Technology (Shenzhen) and Director for Center for Microflows and Nanoflows. Prior to these appointments, he was a Senior Principal Research Scientist and a Research Group Leader at CSIRO Australia, a Senior Technology Fellow at Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication, a fellow of Institute of Engineers Australia and a member of scientific committees for numerous international conferences. His current research interests include micro- and nanoscale thermal & fluid flows, lab on a chip devices, microtheraml systems, multiphase flows and micro-sensors. He has led many research and development projects in both CSIRO and HIT(SZ) in developing advanced technologies for chemical and biological sensing, new materials development, thermal management systems and bioMEMS. Prof. Zhu has published over 200 papers including book chapters, journal articles, conference papers and technical reports. He is the winner of 2012 Australian Museum Eureka Science Prize for Outstanding Science in Support of Defence or National Security.
