6. Dr. Kim will serve as a keynote organizer for the Microfluidics Symposium at the 2007 ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress & Exposition (IMECE) Meeting. He served at the 2006 ASME IMECE as a Session Chair for the Forum on Fluids Engineering in Micro- and Nano-Systems IV.
5. Dr. Kim was invited to present his seminar “Novel Approaches to Nanofabrication for Single Molecule Biophysics,” on Nov. 17th by Dr. John Kasianowicz of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
4. Dr. Kim had his paper entitled “Rapid Fabrication of Uniformly Sized Nanopores and Nanopore Arrays for Parallel DNA Analysis” published in Advanced Materials.
3. Dr. Kim has presented a paper, “Nanopore Sensor for Ultra-fast DNA Analysis”, at the 2006 ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress & Exposition (IMECE) in Chicago. He was also selected as a recipient of the Microfluidic Symposium Over-Achiever’s Award and served as a reviewer for 2006 ASME IMECE Microfluidics Symposium.
2. Ed Steager has started his Ph.D study in Micro/Nanofluidics & Biotransport Lab. He will not only investigate bacterial transportation systems in microfluidic environments but also utilize nanoparticles for cell lysis. Ed received his BS degree from Duke University and currently holds the prestigious DoE GAANN Fellowship and the GK-12 Fellowship (08/14/06).
1. Rafael Mulero has joined Kim’s group to study nanopore sensor systems, in which he is going to detect biohazardous organism, such as bacteria and virus, using ultra-sensitive electronics devices. Rafael completed his BS degree at Drexel University and is currently holding the prestigious NSF Bridge Fellowship (08/01/06).
