Center for Advanced Design and Manufacturing of Integrated Microfluidics (CADMIM): An NSF Industry-University Cooperative Research Center Webinar

October 10, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

Analytical solutions are needed everywhere – the environment, agriculture, food and water supplies, and ultimately for human health and safety. The center will advance interdisciplinary research and education in the science, engineering, and applications of labs-on-a-chip, with emphasis on design and scalable production. CADMIM focuses on the development and translation of highly functional platforms equipped with microfluidic components – chip‐sized devices with high sensitivities and short reaction times, capable of biochemical analyses in miniaturized volumes.

CADMIM’s mission is to develop microscale tools and technologies aimed at simpler, faster, and cheaper analytical solutions addressing human health, agriculture, and the environment. Learn more:

CADMIM is an Industry/University Cooperative Research Center supported by the National Science Foundation. This webinar will provide details of the center’s operation, funding, intellectual property, project selection and management as well as how your participation will benefit your company.

See a list of current and past CADMIM research projects.


Who Should Participate?
Representatives from:
• Industry and National Laboratories who wish to learn more about next generation lab-on-a-chip technology and getting involved in the CADMIM Innovation Ecosystem.
• Any organization exploring the economic possibilities and current technical restraints of lab-on-a-chip development.



Dr. Abraham Lee, CADMIM Director, is a Professor and Chair of the Biomedical Engineering Department at the University of California, Irvine. A pioneer in miniaturization, his research interests include microfluidic platforms applied to point-of-care and molecular diagnostics, sample preparation and liquid biopsy, cell-like vesicles for theranostics, single cell processing and analysis, and vascularized organ-on-a-chips. He has contributed to the founding of several start-up companies, and he serves as an advisor to companies and government agencies.



Dr. Gisela Lin, CADMIM Deputy Director, manages the center from the University of California, Irvine site. Her previous federal, commercial, and academic work experience has contributed to the effective day-to-day operation of CADMIM. She has a PhD in electrical engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles.





Ian Papautsky, CADMIM Co-Director, is a Professor in the Richard and Loan Hill Department of Bioengineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Dr. Papautsky’s research focuses on the use of microfluidics in point-of-care sensor systems and lab-on-a-chip cell separations, as well as electrochemical sensors and microfabrication

About the NSF IUCRC Centers Webinar Series: Hosted by Iowa State and UIDP, The NSF IUCRC Program is supporting a new initiative to feature up to 10 IUCRC Centers in public webinars hosted by Join us for bi-monthly, hour-long webinars to learn more about IUCRC Centers. During the webinars, leading researchers from the various sites will provide a brief overview of the current R&D efforts followed by an open discussion period where attendees can ask questions of the presenters.

For those unable to attend a webinar, all sessions will be recorded for future viewing. Participation is free.
