Prizes for oral and poster presentations for Chemical Engineering research team at EuroBiotech2013

May 13

Dr Nuno Reis and Ana Barbosa have participated in the European Biotechnology Conference 2013 held in Bratislava, Slovakia between 16 and 18th May 2013. Dr Reis, a Lecturer at the department of Chemical Engineering, has delivered an oral presentation entitled "Advanced protein separations and multiplex molecular diagnostics using a disposable high-throughput;microcapillary film", which has been recognised with a "Mariapia Viola Magni" award for best oral presentations in the conference. Ana Barbosa, a 2nd year PhD student in Chemical Engineering, presented a poster entitled "Application of a disposable multiplex ;microfluidic device to rapid biomolecule quantitation", and has been awarded best poster presentation.

The two presentations focused on the application of a patented inexpensive high-throughput extruded microfluidic platform to multiplex diagnostics and real-time bioanalytics, which is a key research activity in the department, in collaboration with Dr Alexander Edwards from Reading School of Pharmacy.
