The Miniaturized Systems for Chemistry and Life Sciences (or MicroTAS) conference took place this year on October 10-14th in a hybrid configuration, both online and in-person in Palm Springs (USA). This conference unite top researchs groups from all over the world and present the most recent advances in MEMS. Audrey attended the conference online from Paris and presented her poster on the development of a sperm sorting platform including chemotaxis guidance.
The Micro-Nano-Fluidics meeting took place in Toulouse (France) in September 2021. This conference was organized by a french research group and covered mainly 6 topics: Nanofluidics, Chemical Engineering, Flow-waves interactions, Flow chemistry, Diagnostics and clinics, Organ-on-Chip. Audrey and Jesús attended the 2 days conference and presented their poster. Audrey’s poster was focused on the development of a microfluidic platform for sperm sorting, while Jesús’s poster described his work on microfluidic droplet generation for bacteria encapsulation and biofilm studies. This national conference was a great opportunity for both ESRs to meet other researchers in microfluidics and discuss about applications in Active Matter.
