You are invited to a brand new edition of the KIVI Innovation Drinks Twente! This edition will start with two inspiring presentations about Lab-on-a-Chip and will conclude with an informal networking drink in the Grand Café. This is a great event to get to know this field of work and potential employers, as well as broadening your professional network.

The first speaker is prof. dr. Jan Eijkel, professor Nanofluidics for Lab on a Chip Applications at University of Twente (Group Biomedical and Environmental Sensor Systems). On the nanoscale fluids behave fundamentally different from fluid behavior on the microscale because the extreme confinement causes another set of forces to become dominant. In the Nanofluidics for Lab on a Chip Applications group they explore the fundamentals of nanoscale fluid behavior and apply the knowledge gained to subjects ranging from green energy generation to metal nanoparticle-assisted nanopore fabrication and from innovative separation methods to point of care diagnostics.

The second presentation will be given by dr. ir. Mark Olde Riekerink, business manager Life Science Research at Micronit microtechnologies BV. Micronit provides innovative lab-on-a-chip and MEMS solutions with a unique combination of micro- and nanotechnologies, different materials, microfluids and MEMS knowledge. Amongst a big range of products Micronit offers Organ-on-a-chip, which empowers a newly developed multidisciplinairy field in which human cell biology and microfluids are merged on top of a lab-on-a-chip architecture.

Would you like to broaden your professional network or are you curious about Lab-on-a-Chip? Get in touch, share your thoughts and broaden your network at the KIVI Innovation Drinks Twente! There will be free drinks and there is no entrance fee.
