Microfluidics is a multidisciplinary field that intersects biology, engineering, physics, and chemistry. The field, which deals with the precise control and manipulation of fluids that are geometrically constrained to a small volume, has evolved considerably in the last three decades since its inception. This nanocourse begins with a description of the principles of microfluidics. You will learn about the fabrication of basic devices and their many uses in understanding complex biological problems. For those taking the course for credit, there will be an assignment to design your own device for a biological question of your own choosing. Microfluidics experts will be on hand during the laboratory portion on the second day of the nanocourse, to help you refine your design and aid in its construction. The second day will also permit you to have the opportunity to walk through a microfluidics experiment from start to finish and create a microfluidic device and test it.
