Abstract: Manipulating micron- and nano-sized objects in magnetic liquids in a continuous flow through so- called “ferrohydrodynamics” is a relatively new research field. It has resulted in label-free manipulation techniques in microfluidic systems and exciting applications such as circulating tumor cells (CTCs) and exosomes enrichment. It is the goal of this talk to introduce the fundamental principles of ferrohydrodynamics and its recent applications in microfluidic enrichment of CTCs and exosomes developed in my lab.
Bio: Leidong Mao is a Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Georgia in Athens, GA. He received his PhD in electrical engineering from Yale University. He is interested in developing new microfluidic technologies for biological or biomedical applications such as cancer cell isolation and understanding the biological clock.LEARN MORE
