Joshua Heinemann, a doctoral student in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at Montana State University, will present "Development of Microfluidics Technology for 'Real-Time' Analysis of Metabolism."
Josh studies metabolism, and is focused on developing technology that will allow researchers to measure changes in metabolism in "real-time" using microfluidics and mass spectrometry. Using this technology living cells are processed and directly measured for changes associated with disease and stress. Development of this technology is important for preemptive treatment or intervention of disease. Microfluidic technology also has the advantages of low cost components and biocompatibility allowing direct integration into a living system.
He is the recipient of a 2012 Kopriva Graduate Student Fellowship.
A reception will follow.
