C. elegans work features on cover of Lab on a Chip journal
PhD student Shazlina Johari's work on microfluidic devices and miniature force sensors for the study of nematode locomotion was featured on the May issue of Lab on a Chip. These millimeter-sized worms are used extensively as model organisms to better understand mechanotransduction aka force sensing, data processing and force transduction in humans. Shazlina works closely with Electrical Engineering academics Dr Volker Nock and A/Prof Maan Alkaisi. Read more...
