Meet us in Boston, USA, in November at the MRS Symposium BM10—Bioinspired Interfacial Materials with Superwettability which we are coorganizing with Haeshin Lee, Robin Ras and Shutao Wang.

Invited speakers include Joanna Aizenberg (Harvard), David Quéré (École Polytechnique), Hans-Jürgen Butt (Max-Planck Institute for Polymer Research), Lei Jiang (Chinese Academy of Science), Tom McCarthy (University of Massachusetts, Amherst), Phil Messersmith (UC Berkeley), Atsushi Hozumi (AIST), Stanislav Gorb (Kiel University), Dimos Poulikakos (ETH Zurich), Chang-Jin "CJ" Kim (UCLA), Anish Tuteja (University of Michigan), Frieder Mugele (University of Twente), Evelyn Wang (MIT), Stefan Seeger (University of Zurich)


The project "Aquarray: Miniaturization of biological screenings based on Droplet Microarrays" will be funded by the EXIST Forschungstransfer programme. The EXIST programme is competitive grant supported by the European Social Fund (ESF), European Union (EU) and the Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Energie (BMWi). The goal of the project is to support the foundation of our spin-off project Aquarray: Congratulations to Anna, Simon and Konstantin for this success!
