Sack Lunch Seminar, Mentorship and Microfluidics: High Quality Medical Care for All, Women in STEM
- Wednesday, February 10, 2021 from 12:00pm to 1:00pm
- Virtually, contact [email protected] for link
Dr. Stephanie McCalla, Associate Professor in Chemical and Biological Engineering and Chemical Engineering senior, Mikayla Wood, are working to engineer faster and cheaper alternatives to current medical diagnostics with the goal of improving access to medicine. They use tools like microfluidics, which are miniature devices that can manipulate small volumes of fluids, to detect and quantify indicators of disease. They will also discuss the important role that mentorship plays in the lab for women in STEM.
This event is part of the MentHERship: Women and Mentoring in STEM series.
