Omar F. Khan
Hi, my name is Omar F. Khan, and I'm currently at University of Toronto. I learned about OpenWetWare from Professor Axel Guenther, and I've joined because Fabrication of microfluidic devices. You can email me through OpenWetWare. I am a serving member of the Toronto Microfluidic Foundry's Process Technology Committee.
