Description

The Center for Environmental and Applied Fluid Mechanics presents Soojung Claire Hur from the Johns Hopkins University Department of Mechanical Engineering who will discuss "Differential Inertial Microfluidics for Biomedical Research" in the CEAFM seminar jointly hosted by Rajat Mittal.

Rapid advances in clinical medicine have revealed formidable obstacles associated with individual variations in treatment responses. The heterogeneity leads to the development of personalized medicine for better therapeutic outcomes, but systematic and quantitative single-cell level analyses are imperative to identify factors contributing to the heterogeneity. Hur's research group develops microfluidic systems that observe and modulate single cell behaviors to yield new insights into these clinical questions.

Hur and colleagues are interested in understanding the relationship between physical properties and cellular phenotypes because not only biophysical properties impact cellular functions but also cellular functions can be regulated and manipulated by physical environmental cues.
