    Biography
      Quiñonez leads the development of new software, hardware, and other technologies in advanced manufacturing at FATHOM. He has twenty years of experience in additive manufacturing, prototyping, product design, and electrical and mechanical engineering. After receiving his doctorate in biology from the prestigious California Institute of Technology, Quiñonez focused on hardware development then joined a product design studio engineering and building bespoke lighting systems. He was led back to science as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of California at San Diego where he developed 3D-printable scientific instrumentation for microfluidic experiments. Prior to joining FATHOM, Quiñonez worked at Autodesk Research in the Bio/Nano/Programmable Matter Group.

    Abstract

    A hardware architecture was developed specifically to facilitate collaborative development and dissemination of microfluidic experiments. Modular pressure regulators, incubators, and chip-to-world interfaces can be readily customized and 3D-printed by investigators. The architecture supports a range of experiments with both whole-organisms and single cells. Wide-spread adoption of a common, community-developed hardware platform for biological experimentation will propel large-scale collaborative efforts and accelerate scientific breakthroughs.
