Prof.-Ing. Roland Zengerle      Plenary Abstract

Prof. Dr. Roland Zengerle was born in 1965. He studied physics at the Technical University of Munich, Germany. From 1990 until 1995 he was a research engineer in the group of microactuators at the Fraunhofer-Institute of Solid State Technology in Munich (today: FhG-IMS). Dr. Zengerle received his PhD degree with the development of an electrostatically driven micropump.

In 1995 Dr. Zengerle accepted a position at the Institute of Micro- and Information Technology (HSG-IMIT) in Villingen-Schwenningen, Germany. He was head of the microfluidics department.

Since 1999 Dr. Zengele is the head of the Laboratory for MEMS Applications at the Department of Microsystems Engineering (IMTEK) at the University of Freiburg, Germany (This Laboratory is a foundation of industry in order to stimulate the cooperation of industry and university).

In addition he is co-director of the Institute of Micro- and Information Technology of the Hahn-Schickard-Gesellschaft (HSG-IMIT). HSG-IMIT is a non-profit organisation supporting industries in development of new products based on MEMS technologies.

Since October 2007 Dr. Zengerle is Executive board member of the cluster of excellence “Biological Signalling Studies (bioss)” at the University of Freiburg.

The research of Dr. Zengerle and his team of 60 engineers is focused on microfluidics and covers topics like miniaturized and autonomous dosage systems, implantable drug delivery systems, nanoliter & picoliter dispensing, lab-on-a-chip systems, thermal sensors, miniaturized fuel cells as well as micro- and nanofluidics simulation. Dr. Zengerle co-authored more than 200 technical publications and 25 patents. He is the European editor of the Springer Journal of Microfluidics and Nanofluidics.

Dr. Zengerle serves on the international steering committee of the IEEE-MEMS conference as well as on the technical program committees of several other international conferences.
