The ChE seminar series features guest speakers. U-M ChE faculty and graduate students are especially encouraged to attend.

TITLE:
Soft Microfluidic Analysis Systems for the Skin

ABSTRACT:
Recent advances in materials science, chemical engineering and mechanics design establish the foundations for high performance classes of microfluidic lab-on-a-chip technologies that have physical properties matched those of the human skin. The resulting devices can integrate with the surface of the skin in a water-tight yet physically imperceptible fashion, to provide real-time measurements of sweat rate and total sweat loss, along with continuous, clinical-quality biochemical information on physiological status using a combination of colorimetric and electrochemical techniques. This talk summarizes the key ideas and presents application examples in sports performance, worker safety, medical diagnostics and nutritional monitoring.

BIO:
Professor John A. Rogers obtained BA and BS degrees in chemistry and in physics from the University of Texas, Austin, in 1989. From MIT, he received SM degrees in physics and in chemistry in 1992 and the PhD degree in physical chemistry in 1995. From 1995 to 1997, Rogers was a Junior Fellow in the Harvard University Society of Fellows. He joined Bell Laboratories as a Member of Technical Staff and then served as Director of the Condensed Matter Physics Research Department from 1997 to 2002. He then spent thirteen years on the faculty at University of Illinois, most recently as the Swanlund Chair Professor and Director of the Seitz Materials Research Laboratory. In the Fall of 2016, he joined Northwestern University where he is Director of the recently endowed Querrey-Simpson Institute for Bioelectronics. His research has been recognized by many awards, including a MacArthur Fellowship (2009), the Lemelson-MIT Prize (2011), the Smithsonian Award for American Ingenuity in the Physical Sciences (2013), the Benjamin Franklin Medal from the Franklin Institute (2019), and a Guggenheim Fellowship (2021). He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Medicine and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
