Chair of the Laboratory Capacity Working Group at the World Bank's Global Food Safety Partnership
Dr. Jason R. Dwyer is an Associate Professor of Chemistry at the University of Rhode Island. His research is at the intersection of bioanalytical chemistry and nanofabrication, with an emphasis on exploration, development, and application of thin-film nanofluidic platforms. Chemically tailored nanopore single-molecule sensors are a prominent focus area for fundamental and applied studies. Before joining URI, Dr. Dwyer completed his Ph.D. in physical chemistry at the University of Toronto, and postdoctoral fellowships in biophysics and applied biophysics at the Max Born Institute (Berlin) and the University of British Columbia. Dr. Dwyer is a recipient of the National Science Foundation CAREER Award.
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
Dr. Reyes is a biomedical engineer at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). He received a B.S. and Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Puerto Rico, and an M.S. in Applied Biomedical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University. After completing his Ph.D., where he worked in the areas of toxicology and environmental analytical chemistry, he was awarded with a National Science Foundation (NSF) Postdoctoral Fellowship to work at Imperial College, London, U.K. There he developed microfluidic devices for 2D separations and analog computing using glow discharge. Some of the areas he is currently working are: development of microfluidic systems with electronic manipulation and measurement for cell-based assays and drug screening, on chip electronic flow measurement sensors, cell-substrate biomimetic interfaces with tunable elasticity and thin- flexible wearable sensors.
