Prof. Jonas Tegenfeldt, PhD
[October, 2014] – Two new group members – Our two newly recruited PhD students Kushagr Punyani and Bao Dang will work on the development and application of label-free particle sorting based on shape, deformability, and dielectric properties in a project financed by our EU-funded project LAPASO.
[September, 2014] – DNA analysis – We have received funding through EuroNanoMed to develop tools for bacterial identification using nanofluidics for DNA analysis. Fredrik Westerlund at Chalmers is PI.
[September, 2014] – New group member – Our newly recruited PhD student Trung Tran will work on cell-mechanical fractionation and characterization of cancer cells in a project financed by Barncancerfonden.
[September, 2014] – Henrik Persson successfully defended his PhD thesis – “Nanowires in Cell Biology – Exploring Interactions and Applications”
[June, 2014] – Two talks will be given at MicroTAS in OCT 2014 from the Tegenfeldt group – Stefan Holm (Density based sorting) & Jonas Tegenfeldt (Keynote on labelfree sorting)
[May, 2014] – Tegenfeldt promoted to full professor
Project grant through EuroNanoMed – “Nanofluidics for ultrafast diagnosis of bacterial infections (NanoDiaBac)”
Initial Training Network (EU/FP7) – “Label Free Particle Sorting”, LAPASO.
Project grant from the Swedish Research Council – “Enrichment of rare cells and parasites using label-free particle sorting”, project grant to develop label-free sorting schemes sensitive to morphology and deformability using deterministic lateral displacement.
