Gale

Director of the Center of Excellence for Biomedical Microfluidics Bruce K. Gale, received his undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from Brigham Young University in 1995 and his PhD in Bioengineering from the University of Utah in 2000. He was an assistant professor of Biomedical Engineering at Louisiana Tech University before returning to the University of  Utah in 2001 where he is now a professor of Mechanical Engineering. He is currently Director of both the Utah State Center of Excellence for Biomedical Microfluidics and the College of Engineering Nanofabrication Facility. He is also Chief Science Officer at Wasatch Microfluidics, a multiplexed instrument development company focused on protein characterization in the […]

Research Assistant Professor Project: Microscale Electrical FFF Webpage: http://mech.utah.edu/faculty/himanshu-sant-research-assistant-professor/  I am a research assistant professor currently involved in developing field flow fractionation (FFF) based microchromatography systems and on-chip detection schemes for the development of basic platform for micro total analysis systems. Micro separation systems under study are capable of separating soluble and colloidal sample ranging from few nanometers to several microns and can be used for detection and size analysis or sample preparation for further downstream processing. These 25 mm in height, 2 mm wide and 5 cm long FFF devices use a variety of driving force which include electrical, […]

Post Doctoral Researcher I am a post doc working in mechanical engineering. I love to use basic science to build engineering solutions. Furthermore, I  enjoy interdisciplinary research as it is fun to learn from others and work with them to overcome challenges. Because of these aspirations, microfluidics as a very interdisciplinary field has served me very well. My research in microfluidics focuses on designing simple and cost-effective replica molding methods for making microfluidic devices out of Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS). PDMS is a very popular biocompatible elastomer used to make microfluidic devices for biomedical applications. Replica molding is a set of fabrication […]
