Lab-on-a-chip technology permits us to make many important discoveries that can only be observed at the microscale or the nanoscale. Using this technology, biological and biochemical analyses translate into greater sensitivity, more accurate results, and more valuable findings. Authored by one of the field's pioneering researchers, Fundamentals of

About the Author

Dr. Paul Li obtained his M.Sc. and Ph.D on chemical sensors with Professor Michael Thompson at the University of Toronto in 1995. He then worked with Professor Jed Harrison at the University of Alberta during 1995-1996 in the field of microfluidic lab-on-a-chip. During 1996-1998, Dr. Li started his first independent research career at the City University of Hong Kong. After joining Simon Fraser University in 1999, Dr. Li continued to conduct research in the areas of microfluidics for single-cell analysis. He is the inventor of four granted patents and five pending patents. He is also involved in analyzing chemical compounds from herbs, especially those with antitumor properties. Dr. Li authored a monograph entitled Microfluidics lab-on- a-chip for chemical and biological analysis and discovery in 2006, and has co-authored a book chapter on microfluidic lab-on-a-chip in Ewing's Analytical Instrumentation Handbook, 3rd edition, 2005.
