Dr. Eric Lagally is currently a faculty member at Western Governors University, where he teaches science to adult students. His research interests are in microfluidics for biological detection, particularly genetic detection of bacterial pathogens and selection and use of affinity reagents including antibodies and nucleic acid aptamers.


Dr. Lagally founded and consulted for Lagally Consulting, and before that served as Assistant Professor at the University of British Columbia from 2006-2011, where his research program was responsible for developing multiplexed surface plasmon resonance microfluidics as well as dielectrophoresis chips for whole-cell detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis.  He has published 30 papers, both peer-reviewed and conference proceedings, and is co-inventor on a patent for microfluidic valve technologies.  He has also authored review papers and chapters in edited books on microfluidic technologies.  He received his Ph.D. in Bioengineering in 2003 from the Joint UC Berkeley/UC-San Francisco Bioengineering Graduate Group.
