Spring 2018 Short Course: Soft Lithography for Microfluidics

The Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology (IEN) at Georgia Tech will offer a short course on “Soft Lithography for Microfluidics” on April 26 & 27, 2018. This course module is designed for individuals interested in hands-on training in the fabrication of microfluidic devices using the soft lithography technique. This 2 day intensive short course will be structured to assume no prior knowledge of the technologies by the participants. The course agenda is evenly divided between laboratory hands-on sessions, including SU-8 master mold creation using photolithography and PDMS device fabrication in the IEN cleanroom, and supporting lectures.  The goal for this course is to impart a basic understanding of soft lithography for microfluidic applications as practiced in academia and industry.

Target Audience
This short course is open to off-campus researchers from academia, industry and government laboratories/organizations and is not limited to current Georgia Tech students or IEN users. Anyone who is interested in starting research in the area of microfluidics or PDMS device fabrication is invited and strongly encouraged to participate.

Rates: *Rates include lunches on all days*
Georgia Tech Rate: $150
Academic and Government Rate: $300
Industry Rate: $600

NanoFANS Forum: Biophotonics in Medical Diagnostics

Join us Wednesday, May 9th for lecture series for anyone interested in the nexus of medical diagnostics and nanotechnology. Lunch will be included for those who register before May the 4th.

The NanoFANS Forum, based out of Georgia Tech's Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology, is a symposium with a presentation of topics at the intersection between life sciences and nanotechnology. The purpose of the forum is to connect the medical/life sciences/biology and nanotechnology/engineering communities. The goal is to communicate to researchers what capabilities micro- or nano- technology may offer them and to foster interdisciplinary research activities.

The Spring 2018 NanoFANS Forum, on May 9th, will focus on “Biophotonics in Medical Diagnostics,” an emerging interdisciplinary field that investigates interactions of light or photons with biological systems. The symposium will be helpful in learning about the applications of biophotonics in disease detection using medical diagnostics.

Who should attend: Faculty, students, scientists, engineers, researchers, and technical staff from university, company, or government labs who use, or are interested in learning about, biophotonics applications in healthcare.
