Stephen Quake is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Stanford University and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator. His research focuses on topics that lie at the nexus of physics, biology, and biotechnology and his research group pioneered the development of Microfluidic Large Scale Integration (mLSI), demonstrating the first integrated microfluidic devices with thousands of mechanical valves. This technology is helping to pave the way for large scale automation of biology at the nanoliter scale, and he and his students have been exploring applications of lab-on-a-chip technology in functional genomics, genetic analysis, and structural biology. Professor Quake is also active in the field of single molecule biophysics.
Refreshments will be provided after the lecture.
