Noo Li Jeon's Biography

Noo Li Jeon, Professor, Seoul National University

Noo Li Jeon is a Professor of School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Seoul National University (SNU). He studied Materials Science and Engineering at Northwestern University (B.S.) and University of Illinois Urbana-Champagne (Ph.D.). He worked on soft lithography applications in Prof G.M. Whitesides’ laboratory at Harvard University and at Prof M. Toner’s group at Harvard Medical School. He was an Associate Professor at UC Irvine from 2001-2009 in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. In 2009, he moved to Seoul National University to join School of Mechanical Engineering at Seoul National University.

Microfluidics Within a 96-Well

Add to Calendar ▼

Conventional microfluidic devices based on Soft Lithography use channels formed by sealing a replicated PDMS structure against a transparent substrate such as a glass coverslip.  Although these devices have been widely used in laboratory setting, it has been challenging to adapt them for high-throughput drug screening applications due to material properties (small molecule absorption onto PDMS surfaces) and miniaturization problems.

This presentation will describe a new type of microfluidic device that is shaped like a 96-well and fit completely inside the well.  This device can be used to pattern 3D gels and cells for organ-on a chip applications.  We have successfully used this device to co-culture neurons and schwann cells as well as endothelial cells and fibroblasts and obtained results (myelination after long-term coculture and angiogenesis/vasculogenesis, respectively) similar to ones obtained in conventional microfluidic devices using PDMS.
