Andrew Kamholz has worked in microfluidics since 1994. After earning a B.S. in biomedical engineering at Johns Hopkins University in 1996, Andrew joined Paul Yager’s microfluidics group at the University of Washington. There, while earning his Ph.D. in bioengineering, he studied microfabrication, optics, diffusion, and various microfluidic assay systems. Since graduating in 2001, he worked for MesoSystems Technology, as Director of Advanced Development with Tecan Boston, and as Director of Microfluidics with Zeteo Tech Inc. He founded Edge Embossing in 2005.
In addition, Andrew is a registered patent agent, authorized to act before the US Patent & Trademark office in patent cases and is also co-inventor on dozens of issued US and foreign patents.
