Professor David Beebe
David J. Beebe is a Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the IEEE EMBS Early Career Achievement Award, the Lab on a Chip (Royal Society of Chemistry)/Corning Pioneers of Miniaturization Prize, the Romnes Award at UW-Madison and is a Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering. Past research topics have included development of non-traditional autonomous micro fluidic devices and systems, and the study of cell and embryo development in microenvironments. David's current interests center on the creation and use of micro uidic tools to understand cancer biology and improve cancer diagnosis and monitoring. His migration to more biological focused research was facilitated by a 5 year NIH "retraining" award in cancer biology.
