10th Australia and New Zealand Nano and Microfluidics Symposium
1st - 3rd July 2019 | University of Wollongong, Australia

The Australia and New Zealand Nano and Microfluidics (ANZNMF) meeting is the annual gathering of the ANZ Microfluidics community, which is a network of researchers working in the field in Australia and New Zealand with the aim of facilitating the exchange of ideas and collaborative interactions.

The next meeting will be held at the University of Wollongong, from 1st July to 3rd July, 2019. The meeting will commence with research sessions on the 1st July, with a dinner to be held on the evening of the 2nd July.

The symposium will provide an exciting forum for both formal presentations of frontier micro/nanofluidic research and ample opportunities for discussions, laboratory tours and networking. The program will cover all areas of micro/nanofluidics, from fundamentals, engineering developments, through to microfabrication, integration, nanotechnology, biosensors, future materials and devices, detection technologies for life science and chemistry, gene, protein and cell analysis and manipulation, chemical and biochemical synthesis, drug screening, and drug delivery.

The ANZNMF network was inaugurated at the first ANZNMF meeting in Melbourne at Monash University in 2009. Successive meetings were hosted by the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney (2011), the MacDiarmid Institute in Wellington (2012), University of South Australia and Flinders University in Adelaide (2013), University of Tasmania in Hobart (2014 and 2017), RMIT University, Deakin University and the Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication in Melbourne (2015), Griffith University in Brisbane (2016), University of Auckland in New Zealand (2018).
