"Miniaturizing DNA Analysis from Fundamentals to Forensics"

Elizabeth A. Strychalski, Ph.D.
Postdoctoral Research Associate & Staff Scientist
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
Gaithersburg, Md.

Abstract: Miniaturized fluidic devices are enabling new possibilities for DNA analysis, a critical task for areas such as healthcare, security, and synthetic biology. First, we will discuss a nanofluidic staircase for meaŽsuring DNA size and for passive control of DNA transport. Second, we will consider a simple microfluidic method and platform for rapid, autoŽmated, and field-deployable DNA extraction from complex sample maŽtrices. Both topics represent the broad range of analytical approaches being developed using miniaturized fluidic devices for DNA analysis.

Bio: Dr. Elizabeth Strychalski received her Ph.D. in physics from Cornell University in 2009. She is a postdoctoral researcher under the National Research Council Research Associateship Program at the National InstiŽtute of Standards and Technology, where she is also a staff scientist.

This Event is For: Clark School • Graduate • Undergraduate • Faculty • Post-Docs
