Séverine Le Gac's Biography

Séverine Le Gac, Professor, Applied Microfluidics for Bioengineering Research, MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology, University of Twente

Séverine Le Gac is Professor at the University of Twente, The Netherlands, where she leads a team called “Applied Microfluidics for BioEngineering Research – AMBER”. Séverine Le Gac received her Engineer degree in chemistry (specialization biology) from the ESPCI (Paris, France) in 2000 and her PhD cum laude in 2004 in life sciences from the University of Lille (France). She has about 20 years experience in the field of microfluidics focusing on bioanalytical, biological and medical applications. Her research interests focus on the use of microfluidic devices and organ-on-chip models for biological and medical applications, including experimentation on single cells, analysis of extracellular vesicles, cancer research, assisted reproductive technologies, and the incorporation of biomechanical cues in organ-on-chip models. Prof. Le Gac is Associate Editor of the Lab on a chip journal (RSC), co-editor-in-chief of the Organs-on-a-chip journal (Elsevier) and part of the advisory board of the Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering (IOP Publisher). Since 2018, she has also been Member of the Director Board of the CBMS Society (Chemical and Biological Microsystem Society;, of which she is currently the vice-president.

Here, we present the development of microfluidic tools to achieve essential steps of a parallel single cell analysis protocol, namely for the large-scale trapping of individual cells in dedicated structures, for in situ cell staining for, e.g., cancer cell identification in mixed cell populations, electrical lysis of individual cells followed by the retrieval of their content, and mapping of point mutations after on-chip whole genome amplification and off-chip sequencing.
