Integrative Microfluidic-based Biosensors for Disease Detection



Dr. Bee Luan KHOO is a biomedical scientist focused on detecting, prognosis, and characterization of disease heterogeneity using multidisciplinary techniques. She joined the City University of Hong Kong in 2019. She is recognized for her efforts by the MIT Technology Review as an Innovator under 35 (Asia 2018) for her work on microfluidic devices with direct clinical relevance. Dr. Khoo's work includes the design and utilization of microfluidic devices for personalized cancer management and evaluation. She has also developed various microfluidic biochips for the direct isolation of primary cancer cells, diseased blood cells, or malaria-infected cells for rapid disease detection. Dr. Khoo has authored more than 30 articles in peer-reviewed journals and has presented in various invited international conferences. As a senior postdoctoral research fellow in the Singapore MIT alliance of Research and Technology, she was awarded the Young Investigator national grant award by the National Medical Research Council. Dr. Khoo recently received the Young Investigator award 2020 to support upcoming projects in disease detection via the Interstellar Initiative, funded by the Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development (AMED) and the New York Academy of Sciences.
