Smart Materials within Microfluidic Devices for Sensing and Actuation

Smart materials that can change their properties upon an external stimulus are on the rise in the sensor and actuator development. In this workshop, we will cover various smart materials and their integration into microfluidic devices as sensors and actuators for a wide range of applications: from environmental science to molecular biology and cancer biology. The tutorial will cover smart materials for the fabrication of chemoand biosensors and electrochemical sensors, actuators (valves), pumps, surface functionalization, 2D patterns and 3D scaffolds.
