Mingming Wu's Biography

Mingming Wu, Professor, Biological and Environmental Engineering Department, Cornell University

Mingming Wu is a professor at Cornell University within the Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering, and associate editor of Physical Biology. She earned a bachelor degree from Nanjing University, and completed a doctorate from Ohio State University, both in physics. Wu split her post doctoral research between École Polytechnique and the University of California, Santa Barbara, before beginning her teaching career at Occidental College. She joined the Cornell University faculty in 2003. Wu was named a fellow of the American Physical Society in 2016. Wu's current work focuses on discovering fundamental principles with which nature use to interact with the environment, in particular, how physical forces regulate cell migration. She is known for developing micro-scale tools controlling cellular environment, and use them to solve contemporary problems in health (tumor invasion and development) and environment (algal blooms).

Microfluidics together with the advancement of the field of biomaterials present an unprecedented opportunity to recreate physiologically realistic 3D environment for mechanistic understanding of human cell and tissue mechanics. In this presentation, I will discuss about efforts from my lab in developing microfluidic models for recreating tumor microenvironment, with an emphasis on elucidating how physical forces regulate tumor cell/tissue mechanics and invasion in a 3D environment.  Our work highlights enabling capabilities of microfluidic platform for providing well defined physical and chemical environment for cells, advancing   frontiers of in vitro human tissue models. I will also briefly talk about our recent work on a nano-scribed 3D microswimmer, its ability to be steered remotely by ultrasound waves, and  potential use in targeted drug delivery.
