Cesar is originally from Mexico, and recently completed his postdoctoral appointment at the Folch lab (University of Washington, Bioengineering Department) under the supervision of Prof. Albert Folch. He explored the use of 3D-Printing (in particular, stereolithography) to fabricate microfluidic devices. Cesar’s experiments have aimed at advancing the resolution of the 3D-Printing process, as well as the biocompatibility and transparency of the resins employed in the printing.
Previously, Cesar completed his PhD in Biomedicine and Microfluidics at the University of Barcelona, under the supervision of Dr. Antoni Homs (now in ICN2). He did his research at the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) in the Nanobioengineering group where he developed microfluidic devices with integrated biosensors for the detection of specific biomarkers. He also did a short stage in the group of Micro and Nanosystems of Prof. Wouter van der Wijngaart at Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) at Sweden.
In our group, Cesar will focus on 3D printing of microfluidic devices.
