Mandy Esch's Biography

Mandy Esch, Project Leader, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)

Mandy B. Esch is a project leader in the Microsystems and Nanotechnology Division. She received an Diploma (equivalent to the American M.S. degree) in Biology and a Dr. rer. nat. (equivalent to the American Ph.D. degree) in Biotechnology from the Julius Maximilians University in Würzburg, Germany. During her PhD research she developed paper-based microfluidics and biosensors for the detection of pathogens such as Cryptosporidium parvum. In 2001, Dr. Esch joined the Cornell Nanoscale Science and Technology Facility as life sciences liaison. In 2007, she joined the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Cornell University as a Postdoctoral Research Associate. While there, she developed patents for cell culture on a porous 3D surface and for a multi-organ microphysiological system (MPS). Together with her colleagues of a team that designed multi-organ fluidic cell culture systems, she received the 2015 Lush Science Prize. From 2015 to 2016 Dr. Esch spent a year as Assistant Professor at Syracuse University (Department of Biomedical and Chemical Engineering). She taught nanobiotechnology and built a laboratory for tissues-on-chips research. In August 2016 Dr. Esch moved to NIST, where she is focusing on integrating sensors with tissues-on-a-chip and multi-organ microphysiological systems.

We have developed a 3D microphysiological cell culture platform that supports the culture of four human tissues (kidney, GI tract, liver, and bone marrow, scaled 1/73,000) with physiological amounts of blood surrogate (80 µL of cell culture medium).
