Dr. Andreas Linninger is a Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Dr. Linninger is focused on fluid dynamics and micro-electronic device design. In his study, Molecular Intervention for Brain Water Regulation in Hydrocephalus, Dr. Linninger will use a novel microfluidic platform to quantify the amount and speed of water flux through aquaporin-4 channels, which are present in the brain and are involved in fluid regulation. This work will create the foundation to test drug interventions to increase fluid flow.
