Speaker Bio: Dr. Qin runs a Medical Microfluidics lab at The Methodist Hospital Department of Nanomedicine, which is located at the heart of the Texas Medical Center Houston and is one of the best places for biomedical research in the world. His lab is well equipped with state-of-the-art micro- and nano-fabrication tools and capable of making most types of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), glass, plastics, and silicon based nanoelectronics/microfluidics devices. His research group receives funding support from NIH/NCI (through pilot project), Department of Defense, Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas, Emily Herman Research Foundation, and Golfers Against Cancer Foundation. He has demonstrated leadership in his field and has senior-authored research papers published in leading journals including Nature Communications, PNAS, Scientific Reports (by Nature Publication Group), and others. He also has three patents pending. Before starting his independent research group, Dr. Qin received his Ph.D. in year 2007 from Northwestern University Evanston IL, supervised by Prof. Chad Mirkin, and completed a postdoctoral training in year 2010 at Caltech Pasadena CA, supervised by Prof. James Heath. During his training years, he published firstauthored papers in journals including Science, PNAS, Nature Nanotechnology, JACS, Nanoletters, Lab on a Chip, and others. He also received eight issued patents. His previous work won him awards including the International Precious Metal Institute Gemini prize, Materials Research Society graduate student award, and Searle center for teaching excellence award.
