MILE - MIcro-Nanofluidics for Life science and Environment
Head: Pierre Joseph PhD student representative: Paul BRUAND
The MILE team is conducting research in microfluidics, an emerging technology that is revolutionizing biotechnology and chemical analysis.
Our work involves manipulating microvolumes of fluid on miniaturized chips, and relies on expertise in small-scale flows and microfabrication.
The main application fields are health (cancer control, regenerative medicine, ...) and the environment (measurement of water quality, ...).
A major research axis deals with the development of new fluidic functions (cell sorting, DNA concentration, etc.), and their integration into a complete lab-on-chip. We also develop (bio)mimetic model systems, in order to decipher complex processes of biology or industry (transport of drugs from blood to tumors, filtration, ...).
We are involved in the organization of the MicroPhysio20 a a lieu à Cargese du 11 au 14 avril 2022, about microphysiological systems
We coordinated with IMFT the GDR Micro Nano Fluidics MNF conferencein september 2021 in Toulouse (140 participants on site, 50 on line)
After coordinating the organization of 2017 Microfluidics Summer School, we contributed to the 2019 edition that took place in Sète, 13-18 October 2019.
