Daniel Irimia's Biography

Daniel Irimia, Associate Director, BioMEMS Resource Center, Harvard Medical School

Daniel Irimia, MD, PhD is a biomedical engineer, trained as a physician, and pursuing research focused on the role of cell migration in health and disease conditions. At the interface between microscale-technologies and medicine, he is designing novel tools for precision measurements of white blood cell migration, for the early detection of sepsis in burn patients and for studying the mechanisms of inflammation resolution.

Microsystems For the Study of Inflammation and Infections

Tuesday, 11 July 2017 at 14:00

Add to Calendar ▼

Microfabrication techniques, which have revolutionized the electronics industry and made possible the gene-chips for whole-genome studies, are now poised to transform the study of the immune responses during inflammation and infections.  New microsystems and assays for ex vivo studies of human and animal leukocytes are emerging, for applications that range from basic research questions regarding leukocyte physiology, to tools to point-of-care devices that rely on leukocytes for diagnostic and monitoring of diseases.  We will review some of the most recent advances in microsystems for the study or inflammation and infections and will discuss the role of new technologies in advancing our understanding of the role of leukocytes in health and disease.
