Doctoral Student Explores the Intersection of 3D Printing, Microfluidics & Bioprinting

University of Tennessee at Knoxville Doctoral student, Peter Golden Shankles, presents his dissertation on ‘Interfacing to Biological Systems Using Microfluidics,’ discussing the popular new field of microfluidics and the 3D printed tools that are propelling it forward—for this project and numerous others recently too. 3D printing allows for much greater self-sustainability in the lab as researchers can create tools for experiments and chemical reactions on their own, but attention must also be paid to how such technologies affect chemical transformations and influence biological systems.
