Stanford University

Juan G. Santiago is Professor and Chair of the Thermosciences Group of Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University. He received his MS and PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1995. His research includes the development of microsystems for on-chip chemical and biochemical analysis, drug delivery, and sample preparation methods. Applications of this work include genetic analysis, drug discovery, and chemical weapon detection. Among other recognition, he was awarded a National Science Foundation Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) ('03-'08) and the Outstanding Achievement in Academia Award by the GEM Foundation ('06); . He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, an Associate Editor of the journal Lab on a Chip, co-founder of Cooligy Inc., co-inventor of micron-resolution particle image velocimetry (Micro-PIV), and director of the Stanford Microfluidics Laboratory. Santiago has given 13 keynote and named lectures and more than 100 additional invited lectures. He and his students have been awarded 10 best paper and best poster awards. He has graduated 18 PhD students and advised nine postdoctoral researchers (12 of his advisees are professors at major universities). He has authored and co-authored over 120 archival publications and 200 conference papers, and holds 24 patents.
