Chong Ahn's Biography

Chong Ahn, Professor of Electrical Engineering, University of Cincinnati

Dr. Ahn is Mitchell P. Kartalia Chair Professor of Engineering in the School of Electronics and Computing Systems at the University of Cincinnati. He is currently Co-Director of the Ohio Center for Microfluidic Innovation (OCMI) at the University of Cincinnati, which was funded from the Ohio 3rd Frontier Wright Projects Program. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology in 1993. Prior to joining the University of Cincinnati, he worked as a Post-Doctoral Fellow at IBM T. J. Watson Research Center, NY, USA. Since joining the University of Cincinnati in 1994, he has successfully initiated and established an excellent Microfluidics and BioMEMS program ( at the University of Cincinnati, and he has been recognized internationally as one of the pioneers in the BioMEMS and lab-on-a-chip fields. One of his key inventions and pioneering contributions includes the new concept of “smart polymer lab-on-a-chip” for the point-of-care testing (POCT) clinical diagnostics and “lab-on-a-tube” for the neurosurgical diagnostics of traumatic brain injury (TBI). He has published over ~350 journal and peer-reviewed conference papers, and chaired numerous international conferences and steering committees. His research interests include the design, simulation, fabrication and characterization of BioMEMS devices, microfluidic device and systems, biosensors and biochips, lab-on-a-chips, in vitro diagnostics (IVD), and point-of-care clinical diagnostics or neurosurgical monitoring. He received the Scientific Leadership Award at the 4th Annual BioMEMS and Biomedical Nanotechnology World in 2003 and received the Best Journal Paper Award of the IEEE Sensor Journal in 2009. He is currently serving as an Editor of the IEEE/ASME Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems (JMEMS), and Editorial Boards of the Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering (JMM), Journal of Microfluidics and Nanofluidics, and Current Nanoscience. He is currently a Fellow at the Institute of Physics. He was the founder of Siloam Biosciences Inc. ( in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA.
