Studying a Cell at a Time

ChE Assistant Professor Edgar Goluch was awarded a $174K NSF grant to use nanofluidic electrochemical detection and optics as an improved method for studying individual bacterial cells. Dr. Goluch received his PhD in Bioengineering from the University of Illinois at urbana-Champaign. The primary focus of his research is the development of detection strategies that are tailored for the micro and nanoscale, with emphasis on biological systems. The work is at size scales ranging from single molecules to single cells. Applications of this research range from personalized medicine to environmental monitoring. He also has expertise in electrochemistry and fabrication of integrated microfluidic systems.
