The invention of the Deterministic Lateral Displacement was a surprise where Nature showed a trick. This simple but subtle technology has spawned a number of applications in biotechnology, and even still is providing surprises as it moves to the nanoscale, where it really should not work, but does.I’ll review the past, present and try to peer into the future about this interesting way to separate objects.

Seminars are open to alumni, friends of the Department, and the general public.
