The book covers the whole breadth of this dynamic field, including classical microfabrication, microfluidics, tissue engineering, cell-based and noncell-based devices, and implantable systems. It focuses on high-impact, creative work encompassing all the scales of life—from biomolecules to cells, tissues, and organisms. Brilliant color presentation Avoiding the overwhelming details found in many engineering and physics texts, this groundbreaking book—in color throughout—includes only the most essential formulas as well as many noncalculation-based exercises. Important terms are highlighted in bold and defined in a glossary. The text contains more than color figures, most of which are from the original researchers.

Background[ edit ] Folch received his B. In , he received his Ph. During his Ph. Miquel Salmeron. From to , he was a postdoc at M. Wrighton Chemistry. In , he joined the laboratory of Dr. The lab uses 3D printing and molding approaches to fabricate microfluidic devices that mimic the real microenvironment of nerve and cancer cells when they are cultured outside of the organism.
The lab is well known for its microfluidic designs, such as the microfluidic photomasks ,  a combinatorial micromixer ,  and a microwell array for optically recording from large numbers of olfactory sensory neurons. Artistic activity[ edit ] The Folch Lab produces microscopy images of microchannels and cells that it then uses to run an artistic outreach program called "BAIT", short for "Bringing Art Into Technology".
Hence, one comes to the exhibit for an artistic experience and leaves having actually learned some science. However, Folch considers each piece a "collaboration" between him and his students who are always credited by name, as in a scientific publication.
The Folch Lab art collection now consists of more than 60 printed or framed pieces and is already in its sixth major exhibit. By Chris Sip and Albert Folch. By Anna Tourovskaia and Albert Folch. Microfluidic Butterfly.
By Greg Cooksey and Albert Folch. Logo of the UW BioE department. By Albert Folch. Caught on the Internet Editorial Empuries, teaches what the Internet is about to computer-illiterate audiences, starting from bits and bytes and ending with issues such as social fairness and hackers.
This book is in its second edition and an extract of it is used in a textbook for Catalan middle schoolers. The Science in Soccer Editorial Empuries, uses soccer examples to convey science. The book is organized in chapters related to various soccer subjects "The ball", "The field", "The player", etc. This book is also available in e-reader format.
This textbook is now being adopted worldwide more than 60 departments in 14 countries. Folch also created a large Catalan Poetry Selection. Still widely visited, the selection features poems and Catalan poets spanning ten centuries, including 24 unpublished poets.
Review of “Introduction to BioMEMS” by Albert Folch
It will review the contents of the book and discuss it suitability as textbook, highlights of the book, and comparison to other textbooks on BioMEMS. Book details List Price. It provides coverage of both historical perspectives and the latest developments in this rapidly developing field. The extensive use of color figures, the non-extensive use of equations, and a thorough glossary of terms will make this textbook ideal for an interdisciplinary introductory bioengineering course.
