Show Notes

We've brought our SLAS Graduate Education Fellowship Grant 2021 winner, David McIntyre, from Boston University, back to the New Matter Podcast for a follow-up discussion.

David provides an update on his research with automating the design of microfluidics through rapid prototyping and machine learning for use in screening synthetic biological systems. We learn what interested him in microfluidic research, the uses cases for his systems and why David wants to work for a start-up in biotech.
