VINSE Welcomes Leon Bellan

Posted by on Friday, October 4, 2013 in News.

Leon Bellan, assistant professor of mechanical engineering

B.S., Caltech, 2003
M.S., Cornell University, 2007
Ph.D., Cornell University, 2008

Bellan’s research focuses on developing novel 3D microfluidic materials. A major focus of his lab is the production of biomaterials and biodevices—created with nontraditional, scalable fabrication techniques—that replicate and augment the functionality of natural tissue. He is currently developing techniques using sacrificial cotton candy to produce 3D microfluidic networks that may be used as artificial capillary beds in engineered tissue. These same 3D microfluidic systems may also be used to make other smart material systems for structural or energy applications.
