Prof. David Issadore
Assistant ProfessorUniversity of Pennsylvania
My research focuses on the integration of microelectronics, microfluidics, nanomaterials and their application to medicine. This multidisciplinary approach enables me to explore new technologies to bring medical diagnostics from expensive, centralized facilities, directly to clinical and resource-limited settings. My academic background in electrical engineering and applied physics and my research experience in a hospital research laboratory prepared me to work and collaborate effectively on these inherently cross-disciplinary problems.
