SCIENCE STUDIO: Microfluidics
Keith talks with Shuichi Takayama, a Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Macromolecular Science & Engineering at the University of Michigan. Shuichi studies microfluidics, which is a way of manipulating small volumes of fluids in useful ways. Microfluidics can save research dollars, emulate cell function, and find the fastest, healthiest sperm that will produce healthier embryos. Shuichi has a talent for metaphor - find out how baking a cake and tiny ants washing their hands fit in to how he describes his research!
