BSR logo

Microrheo‌logy & Microfluidics are two closely connected and emerging fields of research. The difference in emphasis that ‌separates them is the prior knowledge of the fluid's rheological properties. The meeting will embrace two mini-symposiums on Microrheology and Microfluidics, with the aim of encouraging collaboration between the two streams of research.
