Wednesday, February 15, 2017

ME graduate students Eric Sweet and Ilbey Karakurt, along with their fellow Lin Lab members Joshua Chen and Alison Long, have won the Best Student Paper Award at the 30th IEEE International Conference on Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS 2017) in Las Vegas, NV. Their winning paper demonstrates "a fully-3D printed multi-input microfluidic concentration gradient generator, applied as an enhanced antibiotic screening tool to easily and rapidly determine individual antibiotic minimum inhibitory concentration values as well as to study the interactions of three antibiotics simultaneously in a gradient of 'drug cocktails' on ampicillin-resistant K-12 E.Coli Bacteria."
