This training program is intended to train the individual in the areas of lab on a chip as well as the development and application of microfluidic device. The program aims to provide the trainee with basic knowledge and hands-on experience on microsystem and biochips, especially to biosensing device and organ-on-a-chip that are required for the understanding of physics of microfluidics, biosensing mechanism, and actuators, and physiologies of humans. Specifically, the trainee will undergo rigorous training in the basic techniques in microdevice fabrication, microfluidic system, cell culture, fluorescent staining, western blotting, immunofluorescence, microscopy, flow cytometry, and confocal microscopy.
