RAFAEL GÓMEZ-SJÖBERG, PH.D.

Director of Bioengineering

Gómez-Sjöberg obtained a Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering at Purdue University, where he developed a microfabricated sensor of bacterial metabolism for rapid detection of bacterial contamination in liquid samples. After carrying out postdoctoral work on microfluidics at Caltech and Stanford, he led a microfluidics lab at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. At Quanticel Pharmaceuticals (later Celgene Quanticel Research), he designed and built instruments for isolating single cells from very small cell samples and managed a single-cell analysis and sequencing platform. At CZ Biohub, Gómez-Sjöberg and his team are developing cutting-edge optical, electronic, and microfluidic instrumentation to support the work of the Cell Atlas Initiative, the Infectious Disease Initiative, and other research initiatives. A key goal is to proceed swiftly from concept or prototype to robust instruments that enable novel large-scale data acquisition.
