Adrian Zambrano Ramirez, MPI for Cellular Biology and Genetics
Adrian Zambrano is a postdoc in the lab of Dora Tang at the MPI in Dresden. In his research he applies microfluidic technologies and this made him think whether this technology is ready for the consumer market. He will give a critical analysis on the potential of microfluidics for commercial dissemination.
Adrian Zambrano received his PhD in physics from the University of Paris-Saclay/CNRS where he developed biomimetic systems involving DNA reaction networks within microfluidics. Adrian is now a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Dora Tang at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden, Germany. His current research involves the synthesis of protein/polymer scaffolds use to assemble microfluidic-made droplets which are utilized for the encapsulation of enzymatic DNA replicators and other DNA-based assays. Adrian investigates also so the potential of microfluidics for the consumer market and has published an article on the blog "The Microfluidic Circle" on the commercial prospects of this field.
