RAFAEL GÓMEZ-SJÖBERG, PH.D.

Platform Leader, Bioengineering

The Bioengineering Platform led by Gómez-Sjöberg is a team of engineers and tinkerers with a diverse set of skills, including electronics; optics and imaging; mechatronics; fluidics and microfluidics; automation; rapid prototyping; and software development. The group works closely with CZ Biohub’s intramural scientists and other collaborators to design and build unique custom instruments and tools that help advance our scientific missions. A key goal of the Platform is to proceed swiftly—from concept to prototype to robust instruments—to enable novel projects and accelerate the pace of discovery. The instruments developed so far run the gamut from rugged, battery-powered portable devices for performing serology surveys or diagnosing infectious disease in remote areas of developing countries, to an automated multi-channel protein purification device, to lab automation systems that can generate thousands of genetically engineered cell lines.
