    Biography
      Dr Katherine Elvira is the Canada Research Chair in New Materials and Techniques for Health Applications and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Victoria, British Columbia. She gained her PhD from Imperial College London in 2012, then worked as a Senior Scientist at ETH Zürich, where she worked on a variety of basic and applied research in microfluidic platforms for applications such as single cell analysis, surfactant kinetics and organic synthesis on a chip. Research in the Elvira group focuses on the formation artificial cells on a chip to analyse and quantify drug transport. More information can be found on her website: http://web.uvic.ca/~kelvira/

    Abstract

    In this seminar, Dr Elvira will talk about the use of droplet microfluidic technologies for drug discovery. Initially, she will discuss the fundamental concepts of droplet microfluidic technologies, how they work, and how droplets function in terms stability and reproducibility. Dr Elvira will then use specific examples from her own research to highlight how these platforms can be used in the context of drug discovery, such as to enable the rapid and reproducible determination of distribution coefficients, to quantify lipid digestion kinetics, and for the formation of droplet interface bilayers, which are very simple artificial cells.

    Learning Objectives: 

    1. Explain the fundamental characteristics of droplet microfluidic technologies 
    2. Describe some of the types of applications of microfluidic platforms for drug discovery
