About the speaker

Arif E. Cetin is a Research Scientist at Omniome, a DNA sequencing company located in San Diego, CA, USA. Dr. Cetin received his BS degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering and MS degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering both from Koc University, Istanbul. He received his PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from Boston University, Boston, MA, USA. He worked as a postdoctoral fellow at EPFL (Swiss Federal School in Lausanne), Switzerland in 2013–2014 and at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, USA in 2014–2016.

Dr. Cetin pursued research on optical nano-biosensors integrated with microfluidic platforms for ultra-sensitive label-free biodetection. He developed hand-held biosensors for high-throughput and multiplexed biosensing for resource-poor settings. Dr. Cetin developed electro-mechanical sensors for growth rate cytometer to determine therapeutic susceptibility of cancer cells for personalized drug therapy. Recently, he also developed a unique label-free technique for high-throughput DNA sequencing. Dr. Cetin is the author of 30 articles and contributor of more than 50 scientific talks.
