Joshua B. Edel
Joshua B. Edel received his Ph.D. degree on the development of single molecule detection within microfluidic systems from Imperial College London in 2004. He then did postdoctoral research in nanobiotechnology at Cornell University with Professor Harold Craighead. In 2005, he was awarded a research fellowship at the Rowland Institute at Harvard University to study the structure and interactions of individual biomolecules in their native cellular environment. In the same year, Edel was a Finalist for the LabAutomation 2005 Innovation Award. In July 2006, he was appointed to a joint lectureship between the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Department of Chemistry at Imperial College. In 2009, Edel was promoted to be a senior lecturer. He specializes in the development of micro- and nanofluidic devices for analytical and bioanalytical applications and ultrahigh sensitivity optical detection techniques. His expertise includes micro- and nanofabrication, sample preparation and handling, laser-induced confocal microscopy, total internal reflection microscopy, material processing, surface modification chemistries, and standard semiconductor processing and characterization techniques.
