Mark Meacham is an Associate Professor in the Mechanical Engineering & Materials Science Department at Washington University in St. Louis. Dr. Meacham received B.S. and M.S. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Iowa State University, and a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology
A National Research Council postdoctoral research fellowship in the Biochemical Sciences division at NIST began a pivot from thermal-fluids to biomicrofluidic applications. He subsequently co-founded a biotechnology startup to develop cell-based therapeutics using physical methods for intracellular delivery and genetic modification.
After transitioning back to academia in 2014, he established the Scalable Integrated MicroSystems (SIMS) lab at Wash U where research focuses on application of micro- and nanotechnology, acoustic microfluidic principles, and associated transport phenomena to solve problems in Energy Systems and the Life Sciences. He has been recognized with numerous teaching awards and is a recipient of the NSF CAREER.
