Ayokunle Olanrewaju's Biography

Ayokunle Olanrewaju, Assistant Professor, Bioengineering and Mechanical Engineering, University of Washington

Dr. Ayokunle Olanrewaju received BSc and MSc degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. After completing a PhD in Biological and Biomedical Engineering at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, he moved to Seattle for a postdoc in the Mechanical Engineering Department at UW. He started his lab as an Assistant Professor in the Mechanical Engineering and Bioengineering Departments at UW in January 2022. The Olanrewaju lab combines his expertise in autonomous microfluidics and enzyme activity assays to develop technologies for real-time disease monitoring at the point of need, whether in a doctor's office or patient's home.

We envision a fundamental change in the design, prototyping, and deployment of point-of-care diagnostics to transform disease treatment and prevention. We design autonomous microfluidics, self-powered and self-regulated by capillary forces encoded in surface geometry and chemistry, to orchestrate instrument-free liquid handling. We rapidly and inexpensively prototype these devices using desktop 3D printing. These devices have the potential to enable real-time automation of complex biological processes directly at the point of need.
