Auburn University's Department of Chemical Engineering will host a seminar by Klavs Jensen, Warren K. Lewis professor and head of the Department of Chemical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, on Wednesday, March 3, at 2 p.m. in 1103 Shelby Center. Jensen will demonstrate how integrated microsystems and microfabrication techniques can update laboratory procedures to provide a better understanding of fundamental chemical and biological processes and contribute to the discovery of new products. His seminar is entitled "Chemical and Biological Microsystems for Discovery and Development" and is hosted by Auburn's Department of Chemical Engineering.  

Jensen earned a master's degree in chemical engineering from the Technical University of Denmark and a doctoral degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Jensen's research interests include microfabrication and the testing, integration, synthesis and processing of microsystems for chemical and biological discovery.
