Paul Yager Ph.D. is a professor in the Department of Bioengineering at UW. He received his AB in Biochemistry from Princeton in 1975, and PhD in Chemistry from the University of Oregon in 1980. After an NRC Fellowship at the Naval Research Laboratory (1980-1982), he joined the NRL staff as a Research Chemist. He moved to the Center (now Department) of Bioengineering at UW in 1987. Since 1992 his lab has focused primarily on development of microfluidics for the analysis of biological fluids in low-cost point-of-care biomedical diagnostics for the developed and developing worlds. From 2005-2010 a team led by Yager was supported by the Gates Foundation developed a point-of-care system for pathogen identification. Since 2008, activity has focused on developing two-dimensional porous networks for ultra-low-cost instrument-free point-of-care pathogen identification for human diagnosis. Readout is often coupled with cell phones for quantitative analysis and data transmission (support of NIH, NSF, DARPA & DTRA). http://faculty.washington.edu/yagerp/ http://faculty.washington.edu/yagerp/pycv.html
