Barry Lutz's Biography

Barry Lutz, Research Assistant Professor, University of Washington

Dr. Lutz is a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Washington. His expertise is in physics of microfluidic systems including applications to chemical reaction, single cell manipulation, and point-of-care diagnostics. In 2006, he joined the Intel Biomedical and Life Sciences group as a Senior Scientist to develop Raman nanoparticle probes for multiplex protein detection in tissue samples in collaboration with the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. In 2007, he joined Prof. Paul Yager’s group in UW Bioengineering, where he helped develop microfluidic cards for multiplexed immunoassays as part of a multi-institutional collaboration funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. He recently joined the faculty of Bioengineering at UW where his is co-Investigator with Prof. Paul Yaqer and Prof. Elain Fu on several projects to create next-generation paper-based devices for rapid instrument-free point-of-care immunoassays and nucleic acid tests. He is also developing a failure-resistant implantable shunt to treat hydrocephalus with Dr. Sam Browd of UW Neurological Surgery and Seattle Children’s Hospital, and he and Dr. Browd have spun out a company to commercialize the device.

Biochemical diagnostics are typically run in a lab by an expensive instrument or a trained human. We are exploiting properties of shaped paper to “program” disposable devices that run multi-step biochemical diagnostics without an instrument at a cost and ease-of-use comparable to a pregnancy test.
