ASMR Professional Development Webinar

Topic: My academic journey towards development of Personalised 3D Vessel-on-a-chip

Speaker: Associate Professor Arnold Ju, Snow Fellow and Australian Heart
Foundation Future Leader Fellow

Date: Thursday 25 July 2024, 3-4pm AEST

Where: Via Zoom

Registration: Free, register here.

Join us to hear from A/Prof Ju, Snow Fellow and Australian Heart Foundation Future Leader Fellow, The University of Sydney, School of Biomedical Engineering.

A/Prof Ju received his PhD in Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University, USA. In 2014, he joined the Australian Centre for Blood Diseases, Monash University, Melbourne as a junior postdoc; and relocated in 2015 to Sydney, to join the Heart Research Institute. In early 2020, Dr Ju joined the University of Sydney (USYD)’s new School of Biomedical Engineering as a senior lecturer and started up the Mechanobiology and Biomechanics Laboratory (MBL).

A/Prof Ju works at the biomedical engineering and mechanobiology. His team has pioneered multiple biomechanical nanotools, including blood-clot-on-a-chip microfluidic devices (Nature Materials 2019), single-cell biomembrane force probes (Nature Communications 2018), 4D hemodynamic modeling (Nature 2021) and fluorescent micropipette aspiration assays (Nature Communications 2024). His novel understanding of the mechanics behind blood clot formation has profound implications for diagnosing and preventing heart attacks and strokes. His vision is to build novel platforms that integrate advanced biomanufacturing, high-throughput biomechanical manipulation, and artificial intelligence for biobank data processing.

Recently, he was awarded the prestigious $8 million Snow Fellowship. This acknowledgment fuels his mission to create microdevices that monitor and alert individuals at risk of life-threatening conditions for his father and broader community worldwide.

Non-member registrations are free for this webinar. Recording of all previous ASMR PD webinars are available so join ASMR to access our webinars for free!

If you’re enjoying the ASMR PD webinars or think this topic may be of interest to others, why not invite someone who isn’t an ASMR member to join the Society so they too can access all the benefits of being an ASMR member, including these webinars and ASMR’s advocacy for a more secure health and medical research sector.

We look forward to you joining the webinar!
