George Whitesides kicked things off, then later took a group photo with Abe and his students.

Adam Hauke (U. Cincinnati) won the CHEMINAS Young Researcher Poster Award for his poster entitled “An Integrated Microfluidic System for Continuous Wearable Sweat Sampling and Sensing: Solving Issues with nL Sample Volumes and Skin Contamination.”

Sthitodhi Ghosh (U. Cincinnati) won the 3rd place Hochuen Portable Microfluidic Award. Sponsored by Hochuen International Corporation, these awards recognize significant progress and innovative excellence in portable devices.

Chong made new friends at Enplas Corporation.

Michelle’s Shark Tank was a huge success!

Passing the baton to next year’s conference co-chairs (they have no idea what they’re in for…)

By far, the highlight of the conference.
