Jaap den Toonder's Biography

Jaap den Toonder, Professor and Chair of Microsystems, Eindhoven University of Technology

Jaap den Toonder is full professor and Chair of the Microsystems group at Eindhoven University of Technology. Jaap den Toonder studied at Delft University of Technology and got his Masters degree in Applied Mathematics in 1991 (cum laude). He received a PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering (cum laude) from the same university in 1996. In 1995, he joined Philips Research Laboratories in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, where he started working in the field of the mechanics of solid materials. In 2008, he became Chief Technologist, leading the R&D program on microfluidics. He was involved in research programs on molecular diagnostics, lab-on-chip, immersion lithography, and energy applications. Next to his main job at Philips, Jaap den Toonder was a part-time professor at the Materials Technology group of the Eindhoven University of Technology between 2004 and 2013, and he became a full-time professor in May 2013. His current main research interests are: micro-fluidics, out-of-cleanroom micro-fabrication technologies, mechanical properties of biological cells and tissues, nature-inspired micro-actuators, organs on chips. Jaap den Toonder has (co-)authored over 90 scientific papers, as well as over 40 patent applications.

Control of fluid flow at small length scales (typically < 1 mm) i.e. “microfluidics”, is important for many applications. Examples are devices for healthcare diagnostics, in which complex tasks of (bio-)fluid manipulation and detection need to be performed; organ-on-a-chip devices in which suitable micro-environments for multicellular tissue structures need to be  created; water quality monitoring chips for continuous detection of bacteria, algae and chemicals; and manipulation of fluids droplets over surfaces. We are developing new technologies for active control of microfluidic flow in these applications. In doing this, we are inspired by nature in which a variety of microfluidic manipulation principles can be recognized.
