Fan Wu is a biomedical and electrical engineer with more than 10 years of experience in design, micro-fabrication and testing of micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) for biomedical applications.
As VP of Product Development at Diagnostic Biochips, he is focused on innovating the field of advanced implantable sensors. Fan has published 15 scientific journals and holds three patents related to his doctoral thesis, which was focused on designing implantable devices with integrated nano-photonics and circuits to map brain functions with unprecedented spatiotemporal resolution.
Throughout his career, Fan has achieved recognition in the form of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Student Fellowship award, Best Oral Presentation award at the 17th International Conference on Solid-State Sensors, Actuators and Microsystems, “Highlight of the year” in the Journal of Neural Engineering in 2013, and a cover-page article in Neuron, vol.88, 2015. While working as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Michigan, Fan was awarded by NSF under the Innovation Corps program to develop a business plan to commercialize his research. Fan earned his Ph.D. and M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan, and his B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin. He does not waste a single day off at home, and always finds new places in the world to travel each year for hiking, scuba diving, and skiing.
