Building complex life through self-organization: from organ to organism

Philipp Maurer studied mechanical engineering at RWTH Aachen University, Germany. He specialized in biomedical engineering and achieved his engineering diploma 2013. There after he attended a Ph.D. position at KEµ of RWTH Aachen University which specializes on design and development of microsystems. At KEµ he worked on the miniaturization of a test for calcification risk analyses using Micro fluidic chips fabricated by ultrasonic hot embossing. The developed setup used turbidity measurements and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy for particle characterization to determine calcification risk of patients.

2017 he received his doctorate in engineering from RWTH Aachen University and joined the MERLN Institute for Technology-Inspired Regenerative Medicine. At MERLN he develops microfluidic cell culture systems which follow a high-throughput approach to study and control cell behavior in a parallel manner.
