Biomicrofluidics Announces Low-Cost, 3D-Printed Microfluidic Bioreactor as 2021 Best Paper Award Recipient

The journal Biomicrofluidics has selected Ikram Khan as the winner of its 2021 Best Paper award. The designation highlights significant contributions by emerging authors in microfluidics and nanofluidics and is determined by an expert panel of judges. In the winning paper, “A low-cost 3D printed microfluidic bioreactor and imaging chamber for live-organoid imaging,” the authors developed a system capable of supporting brain organoid growth while allowing long-term live imaging and drug delivery support. Organoids, or biological systems grown in vitro, act as important models for studying normal and diseased development.
