Albert Folch’s “The upcoming 3D printing revolution in microfluidics” featured on Lab on a Chip cover
UW Bioengineering Associate Professor Albert Folch co-authored and designed the cover illustration for the cover article "The upcoming 3D printing revolution in microfluidics" of the May 21 issue of Lab on a Chip.
In “Art on the Nanoscale and Beyond,” Dr. Folch and collaborators discuss applications of nano and microscale materials in art, and their utility communicating science to a broader audience.
UW Bioengineering faculty Suzie Pun and Albert Folch were inducted to the AIMBE College of Fellows Class of 2015 at the AIMBE Annual Event, which was held March 15-17 in Washington, D.C.
Albert Folch delivers keynote talk at Duke University’s Mahato Memorial Event; Interviewed by Spanish-language NTN24
UW Bioengineering Associate Professor Albert Folch delivered the keynote talk at Duke University's Mahato Memorial Event November 19, 2014, an event that celebrates the intersection of art and science.

Folch lab and collaborators examine how cells use systems-level mechanisms to process information in new PNAS paper
UW Bioengineering associate professor Albert Folch, Folch lab senior fellow Nirveek Bhattacharjee and collaborators at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the University of Buenos Aires in Argentina have published research in the early online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) examining how cells use systems-level mechanisms to process environmental information. The research shows a promising example of how microfluidics can be used to expose cells to complex signals, a major goal in systems biology studies.
