The Klapperich Laboratory, the new NIH Center for Future Technologies in Cancer Care (FTCC) and the Boston University Department of Biomedical Engineering are happy to host the second Microfluidics 2.0 Conference this fall. The conference will take place on the BU campus in Boston on Friday 11/30/12 and Saturday morning 12/1/2012. The workshop is immediately after the Materials Research Society Fall Meeting held in Boston's Copley Square. BU is located a short walk or train ride away from Copley Square. Day One will consist of lectures and a poster session open to all attendees. Day Two (limited registration) will include several hands on demonstrations and laboratory sessions.

ALL PARTICIPANTS are invited to participate in the poster session on Day One. Please indicate if you will bring a poster on the registration form.
