Ali Anil Demircali
Postdoctoral Scholar, Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford
BioAli Anil Demircali received B.Sc, M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees in Mechatronics Engineering at Yildiz Technical University, Istanbul, Turkey, in 2015, 2017, and 2021, respectively. Then he pursued his career in optical hollow-core fiber development at the Hamlyn Center for Robotic Surgery in Imperial College London, United Kingdom between 2021 and 2022. He is currently doing a second Post. Doc. in the Department of Radiology, Molecular Imaging Programme (MIPS) at Stanford University, USA. Currently, he is working on magnetically levitated cancer cell separation and sorting with high throughput, and its application on wearable devices. His main areas of research interest are not limited to but include Micro-Nano Robotics and Fluidics, Mechanical Design and Optimization, Magnetic Levitation, and Sensory Systems.

BioJennifer Dionne is the Senior Associate Vice Provost of Research Platforms/Shared Facilities and an Associate Professor of Materials Science and Engineering and of Radiology (by courtesy) at Stanford. Jen received her Ph.D. in Applied Physics at the California Institute of Technology, advised by Harry Atwater, and B.S. degrees in Physics and Systems & Electrical Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis. Prior to joining Stanford, she served as a postdoctoral researcher in Chemistry at Berkeley, advised by Paul Alivisatos. Jen's research develops nanophotonic methods to observe and control chemical and biological processes as they unfold with nanometer scale resolution, emphasizing critical challenges in global health and sustainability. Her work has been recognized with the Alan T. Waterman Award (2019), an NIH Director's New Innovator Award (2019), a Moore Inventor Fellowship (2017), the Materials Research Society Young Investigator Award (2017), Adolph Lomb Medal (2016), Sloan Foundation Fellowship (2015), and the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (2014), and was featured on Oprah’s list of “50 Things that will make you say ‘Wow!'"
Assistant Professor (Research) of Radiology (Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Durmus' research focuses on applying micro/nano-technologies to investigate cellular heterogeneity for single-cell analysis and personalized medicine. At Stanford, she is developing platform technologies for sorting and monitoring cells at the single-cell resolution. This magnetic levitation-based technology is used for wide range of applications in medicine, such as, label-free detection of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from blood; high-throughput drug screening; and rapid detection and monitoring of antibiotic resistance in real-time. During her PhD, she has engineered nanoparticles and nanostructured surfaces to decrease antibiotic-resistant infections.
