Mechanical Engineering faculty member Dr. Boris Stoeber has edited a new book on microneedle technology – the use of needles smaller than a milimetre long as a minimally invasive way to deliver drugs and monitor compounds in the body – alongside co-editors Dr. Raja K. Sivamani (UC Davis Health) and Dr. Howard I Maibach (UC San Francisco). Microneedling in Clinical Practice will provide a comprehensive overview of current knowledge on the subject, and publishes on October 2nd by CRC Press.
Collaborating since 2016, the co-editors brought together various experts in microneedles to author twelve chapters on the different ways this technology can be integrated into clinical use for medical or cosmetic purposes. The chapter “Hollow Microneedles” was authored by UBC Mechanical Engineering and Electrical and Computer Engineering alumnus Dr. Iman Mansoor alongside Dr. Stoeber, his former supervisor. A recognized expert in microneedle technology, Dr. Stoeber is a Canada Research Chair in Microfluidics and Sensing Technology, researching microscopic fluid motion for biomedical and other applications.
