Fu and Kurabayashi’s research featured as cover story of Advanced Healthcare Materials



An integrated microfluidic immunophenotyping platform is developed by Assistant Professor Jianping Fu, Professor Katsuo Kurabayashi, and co-workers for rapid and efficient isolation, enrichment, stimulation and functional immunophenotyping of subpopulations of immune cells from minute amounts of blood samples. Such an innovative tool will allow comprehensive and systems-level immune monitoring to define and characterize the “immune status” of healthy individuals and patients, critical for clinical interventions and managements of patients with immune system disorders and other immune diseases such as HIV and tuberculosis (TB).

This work has been recently published as the front cover story in Advanced Healthcare Materials, which is an international, interdisciplinary forum for peer-reviewed papers on materials science aimed at promoting human health. Advanced Healthcare Materials was published as a special focus section integrated in Advanced Materials in 2011 and launched as a journal at the start of 2012.
