Govind Kaigala recieves the University of Alberta Alumni Horizon Award

Govind Kaigala has been honored with the Alumni Horizon Award of his alma mater, the University of Alberta, Canada. The Alumni Horizon Award celebrates outstanding achievements of University of Alberta alumni early in their careers. Govind was one of the University of Alberta’s first cross-disciplinary PhD students trained in both the biomedical and engineering aspects of their work, and earned his PhD in electrical engineering and oncology.

Govind is responsible for the microfluidic probe efforts, and one of his focus areas is the analysis of tissue sections and the handling of cells on surfaces for diagnostic and research applications. Govind and his colleagues have proposed the concept of “tissue microprocessing” which is conservative of precious tissues samples while developing techniques to unravel more and higher-quality data. For example, they showed that tumor markers can be detected with a technique called micro-immunohistochemistry. They are now extending several concepts related to microfluidic probes and tissue microprocessing with partners.

New paper on Hydrodynamic Levitation in Applied Physics Letters!

We illustrate in this paper a self-regulating distance control approach for microfluidic probe-based on hydrodynamic levitation, and call the device the “floating MFP.” This enables scanning across non-planar and irregular topographies. Please see the publication section for details.
