Master Thesis ETH medal for Marios Georgiadis

Marios Georgiadis obtained the ETH Medal in 2012 for his outstanding master thesis titled “Microfluidic probe for local staining of tissue sections.” Work performed as part of this thesis laid the foundation for a focused activity at IBM Research – Zurich on new technologies for tissue-based diagnostics in pathology. Marios was registered in the Biomedical Engineering masters program at ETH. His thesis was done in the Nanofabrication group at IBM Research – Zurich and with Professor Andreas Stemmer as his academic supervisor.

Early work on microscale tissue staining

Proof-of-principle of staining tissue sections at the micrometer length-scale with the microfluidic probe demonstrated. The strategies demonstrated have implications in disease diagnosis and drug discovery (see article).
