Event description

Description

How do you fish for elusive circulating nucleic acid markers in blood? Maïwenn Kersaudy-Kerhoas from Heriot-Watt University and the University of Edinburgh will present research by her clinical microfluidic group and her collaborators, focusing on engineering novel solutions for clinical sample preparation to answer tomorrow's big clinical questions and speed up the implementation of emerging markers into clinical workflows. This session will highlight collaborative research between engineers, physicists, biologists and clinicians, and should inspire young researchers to apply their skills to multi-disciplinary projects.
