Elliot Hui’s Research Named one of the JALA 10 for 2014
Every year since 2010, the Journal of Laboratory Automation (JALA) has highlighted the top breakthroughs across the fields of automation, drug development, diagnostics, microfluidics, bioengineering, and nanotechnology, among others, which will impact basic and translational research across the academic, government, and industry research sectors. This year Elliot Hui’s development of an innovative reconfigurable microfluidic channel that is capable of high-fidelity modulation of channel width, which enabled the first time-lapse observation of the C. elegans stem cell niche, has named one of the JALA 10 Top Breakthroughs in Innovation for 2014. Congratulations Elliot!
