Jin Akagi receives the Best Student Paper Award at the MOEMS-MEMS SPIE Photonics West Conference 2013 in San Francisco
Jin Akagi, PhD student at the BioMEMS Research Group has just received the Best Student Paper Award at the MOEMS-MEMS SPIE Photonics Conference 2013. The prize was awarded for his recent paper “Dynamic analysis of angiogenesis in transgenic zebrafish embryos using a 3D multilayer chip-based technology”. It will be officially presented to Jin during the SPIE MOEMS-MEMS Plenary Session on 4th of February in San Francisco, USA. The prize is supported by Fraunhofer IPMS. Our sincere congratulations go to Jin for his great achievement!
In our newest work (Akagi J, Khoshmanesh K, Hall CJ, Cooper JM, Crosier KE, Crosier PS, Wlodkowic D. Fish on chips: Microfluidic living embryo array for accelerated in vivo angiogenesis assays. Sensors and Actuators B Chemical 2012, in press) we introduce our recent invention - a 3D microfluidic embryo array for real-time developmental analysis of transgenic zebrafish embryos.
In our newest work (Skommer J, Akagi J, Takeda K, Fujimura Y, Khoshmanesh K, Wlodkowic D. Multiparameter Lab-on-a-Chip flow cytometry of the cell cycle. Biosensors and Bioelectronics 2013, 42: 86–591) we demonstrate for the first time a new rationale for using microfluidic Lab-on-a-Chip flow cytometry (μFCM) with a simple 2D hydrodynamic focusing for the multiparameter analysis of apoptosis and DNA ploidy analysis in human hematopoietic cancer cells.
In our newest work (Akagi J, Takeda K, Fujimura Y, Matuszek A, Khoshmanesh K, Wlodkowic D. Microflow cytometry in studies of programmed tumor cell death. Sensors and Actuators B Chemical 2012 in press) we demonstrate that advanced multiparameter assays to track the caspase-dependent tumor cell death can be rapidly performed using an innovative microfluidic flow cytometry (μFCM) system.
We are attending SPIE MEMS-MOEMS 2013 in San Francisco.
MOEMS-MEMS, part of SPIE Photonics West, where the latest on microfluidics, MEMs, MOEMs, micro-optics, adaptive optics research are discussed. This conference explores how MEMS and MOEMS will enable the mass-produced miniaturized products and integrated systems of the future.

Our newest work (Darzynkiewicz Z, Zhao H, Halicka D, Rybak P, Dobrucki J and Wlodkowic D. DNA damage signaling assessed in individual cells in relation to the cell cycle phase and induction of apoptosis. Critical Reviews in Clinical Laboratory Sciences, 2012; Early Online: 1–19) outlines the progress in understanding and analysis of phosphorylation events reporting activation of protein kinases and the key substrates critical for the DNA damage signaling (DDS).
