Topic: To Be Announced

SPEAKER:

Dr. Brian Yu

New PhD. from Quake Lab, Stanford University 

 SPEAKER BIOGRAPHY:

 

    Microbes are abundant and diverse. They participate in many environmental nutrient cycles and affect human health. However, little is known about the genetic makeup and phenotypic responses of microbial communities to different and changing environmental conditions.

    I am interested in applying novel experimental techniques such as microfluidics, time-lapse imaging, DNA sequencing, and bioinformatics in order to probe microbial diversity and function at genomic, transcriptomic, and phenotypic levels with single-cell resolution.

    I recently completed my Ph.D. in the Quake lab at Stanford University, under joint supervision of Dr. Stephen Quake and Dr. Mark Horowitz.

    One of my main research projects involves developing a microfluidic-based metagenomic method to identify novel microbial phylogenies. Another project studies cyanobacterial physiology at the single-cell level using a microfluidic cell culture setup.

    Before Stanford, I attended Caltech and received my B.S. in Electrical Engineering. Under the supervision of Dr. Yu-Chong Tai, my research focused on designing and fabricating MEMS (microelectromechanical system) check valves for various biomedical implants.

    As a technology, microfluidics offer many advantages compared to traditional methods of experimentation. Its precise liquid handling capability and high throughput nature make possible the collection of scientific data that are impractical to collect otherwise. However, due to long design-build-test cycles and complex control setups, many researchers choose not to adopt microfluidic platforms.

 

    Therefore, as another goal of my scientific career, I aim to alleviate technical hurdles hindering the wide adoption of microfluidic systems through system level integration.

 Job Seeker Assistance at this event:

 In response to recent new layoffs, and continuing concerns for people seeking employment,

 SFBA Nano is offering assistance to job seekers.

 1.  A table with CVs/resumes available for people to pick up, and

 2.  An "Announcement Slide" which will be projected during the initial networking session

 Job Seekers:

 1. Bring copies of your resume for distribution & display on the resume table.

 2. Send a one-line description of yourself, to be displayed on the “Announcement Slide” (described above in item 1).

     Example, “Dr. Non Sequitur, over 35 yrs experience in Circular Arguments; seeking Marketing position”  

 Send your one-line description by March 18 to:

  SFBA.Nano.Jobs@gmail.com

 Please feel free to forward this invitation to any of your own colleagues who may be seeking jobs.  

 * Please help us manage our event planning.  When we have many walk-in attendees, it is difficult for us to order the proper amount of food for lunch. 

** Tickets cancelled by 5 PM on March 19 will have payments refunded
