David Juncker

David Juncker is a Professor and Chair of the Biomedical Engineering Department at McGill University. His lab is explores various facets of miniaturization and integration in biology and medicine, which includes the conception, engineering and utilization of novel micro and nanotechnologies for manipulating, stimulating and studying oligonucleotides, proteins, cells, and tissues.  The research foci comprise the development of novel scalable antibody microarrays for protein profiling and their use for biomarker discovery and early diagnosis of disease such as cancer; self-powered lab-on-a-chip for diagnostics at the point-of-care and low-cost thread-based devices for use in global health applications; microfluidic probes for brain slice perfusion and single cell manipulation; and nanogradients for studying neuronal cell navigation.

He is the recipient of several awards most recently the Canada Research Chair in Bioengineering (2019).  He has also received Canada Research Chair in Micro- and Nanobioengineering (2006, renewed 2011), a Fellowship from the German Cancer Research Centre (DKFZ) (2013) and a Fellowship from the Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences (1997-1998) to name a few.
