Alexander Guttenplan (Fed)

NRC Postdoctoral Fellow

Alex Guttenplan is a NIST-NRC Postdoctoral Researcher in the Biophysical and Biomedical Measurement Group. He obtained his PhD from the Nanoscience and Technology Doctoral Training Centre (nanoDTC) at the University of Cambridge, where he developed protein-based nanomaterials and used microfluidics to manufacture and characterize them.

After a short period in the microfluidics industry, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the MERLN Institute for Technology-Inspired Regenerative Medicine in Maastricht, the Netherlands, where he worked on the design and fabrication of microfluidic devices to investigate cell-material interactions, particularly those related to bone growth and remodeling.

At NIST, Alex's research with Darwin Reyes-Hernandez focuses on the development of instrumented microfluidic tissue-on-chip platforms using the BioMEMS project's unique competencies in flexible electrode fabrication to rapidly assemble and automatically monitor biomimetic model barrier tissues.
