Last month I attended the Wyss Institute’s Symposium on Microfluidics and Medicine, a fantastic gathering of some of the most influential people in microfluidics from around the world. While many speakers were from academia, it was different from a typical academic conference because (in the spirit of the new Wyss Insitute) the focus was on how microfluidics could be launched into society. This was a great opportunity to hear from leaders in the field about the state of microfluidics today, and where things might be going in terms of commercialization. For an official recap, click here. Part 1 below summarizes some of the applications mentioned by speakers.
(Stay tuned for Part 2, which will summarize insights on design and commercialization…)
