A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

About

Nicolas MINIER obtained his M.Sc with the “BME Paris” biomedical engineering program, and specialized in biomaterials (Paris Descartes university, ENSAM, and Mines ParisTech). He joined the Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences (iCeMS) at the University of Kyōto, where he worked on improving existing protocols for the differentiation of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) in hepatocytes, relying on an organ-on-a-chip strategy.

Today, he puts a focus on microfluidics and its applications in biology, such as organs-on-chips. Since Jan. 2018, Nicolas joined the “Biomaterials and Microfluidics” platform of Institut Pasteur, and worked on a project relying on laser photoablation of soft hydrogels to create vascular-like strutures within 3D cell cultures.

Starting Sept. 2018 he is pursuing a Ph.D, with the goal to create a novel generation of hydraulically actuated hydrogel layers (HAHL) devices (patented), to provide state-of-the-art models for investigating biological processes in microfluidic devices. The first application pursued concerns a “gut chip”, where most physico-chemical parameters are under the control of the operator.
