EMBL Conference – Microfluidics 2016 Heidelberg

  • Conference Call
  • The Euro­pean Mol­e­c­u­lar Biol­ogy Lab­o­ra­tory (EMBL) is kindly invit­ing you to par­tic­i­pate in its Con­fer­ence on Microflu­idics 2016, which will be held on July 2426, 2016 at EMBL Labs in Hei­del­berg, Ger­many.

    Why attend?

    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 nucleotide sequenc­ing, func­tional genomics, sin­gle cell/​sin­gle mol­e­cule stud­ies and diagnostics.

    Many of these appli­ca­tions, includ­ing next-​generation sequenc­ing devices, have been rev­o­lu­tionised by minia­tur­i­sa­tion, paving the way for global gene analy­sis and hence trans­form­ing biol­ogy. In addi­tion, work­ing on the pico– to nano­liter scale not only allows a high degree of par­al­leli­sa­tion, but also 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 EMBL Microflu­idics Con­fer­ence 2016 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.
