This end of semester was quite heavy, with two PhD graduations ! Pascal, who worked on the synthesis of fluorescent glycolipids to functionalize droplets graduated last week. He did his PhD with two advisors, J.M. Mallet and me. Olivier, who worked on the developement of a microfluidic chip to perform statistical studies of B-cell antigen … Lire la suite Congrats to Dr. Matton and Dr. Mesdjian !
We are currently recruiting for projects taking place at IPGG : an engineer or postdoc to work on an applied interdisciplinary project to develop a new method to purify cells and organelles using homemade functionalized microparticles. The project involves the Institut Curie (Pablo Vargas, for immunology and cell biology) and the Pôle Microfluidique of the … Lire la suite Engineer/Postdoc and M2 positions available

We organised, for UPMC master students (5C809 teaching unit), three days of lab classes dedicated to PDMS micro-fabrication and some basic microfluidics concepts (mixing fluids at the micron scale, droplet generation, etc.). The lab class took place in the IPGG, in a room specifically dedicated to experimental teachings. The room is also used from time to time … Lire la suite Microfluidics lab class (Fall 2015, some pictures)
