我校定于2016年12月14日举办研究生灵犀学术殿堂第109期之Pouya Rezai教授报告会,现将有关事项通知如下:

 

1.报告会简介

 

报告人:Pouya Rezai

 

时 间:2016年12月14日星期三上午10:10-11:40

 

地 点:西北工业大学友谊校区毅字楼218

 

主 题: Integrated Hybrid Lab-on-Chips for Human Disease Studies

 

内容简介:The field of drug discovery is in urgent need for more relevant biological models and advanced technologies to improve the process of finding therapeutics for human diseases. Two of the most promising disease models are (i) small whole organisms such as C. elegans, D. melanogaster and D. rerio, and (ii) three-dimensional organs, organelles and tissues. Each of these models have their own advantages and disadvantages that will be discussed during the talk. However, one commonality between them is the need for automated sample processing and screening technologies to enhance the quality and throughput of screening. Microfluidics has been among the top technologies that hold a great potential to address this gap in the drug discovery industry. In this talk I will introduce you to the latest research in the field of organisms- and organs-on-a-chip for drug discovery and fundamental disease studies.

 

新药研发领域迫切需要利用更相关的生物模型和更加先进的技术来优化寻找人类疾病治疗剂的过程。其中两个最有希望的疾病模型为(1)小型完整生物体,诸如秀丽隐杆线虫、黑腹果蝇等;和(2)三维器官、细胞器和组织。每个模型都有各自的优缺点,我们将在本场报告中一一进行讨论。但是,它们之间的一个共同点是,需要利用自动化样品处理和筛选技术以提高筛选质量和产量。而微流控技术在解决新药研发领域中具有巨大潜力。本场报告将向大家介绍我们在新药研发与基础疾病研究中生物和器官芯片领域的最新研究。

 

2.欢迎各学院师生前来听报告。报告会期间请关闭手机或将手机调至静音模式。

报告人简介:

Dr. Pouya Rezai is an emerging researcher in the area of microfluidics and Lab-on-Chips (LoC). He received his Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from Chalmers University of Technology in 2008 and his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from McMaster University in 2012. Dr. Rezai was an NSERC Visiting Fellow at Public Health Agency of Canada before joining York University in July 2013 as an Assistant Professor. He serves as the founding Graduate Program Director of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at York University and the Associate Editor of the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering (CSME) bulletin. He is also an Associate Member of the Graduate Program in Biology at York University.

Dr. Rezai’s research interest is to advance micromachining and microfabrication technologies to develop LoC devices for studying interactions between micro-particles, small biological substances and fluids in microenvironments with applications in biology and medicine. His research group has developed (i) LoC for quantitative investigation of neurobehavioral responses of disease model organisms (D. melanogaster, C. elegans, and D. rerio) to electric, acoustic, and chemical cues; (ii) microfluidic platforms for multiplexed sorting of microorganisms and microparticles in fluidic samples; and (iii) micro-electro-mechanical sensors and actuators to exploit the advantages of composite and functional polymers and carbon nano-structures in miniaturized devices.
