Graduate Student, Matthew Wehrman publishes a paper in Lab-on-a-Chip that is chosen as a HOT article

Graduate student, Matthew Wehrman, working with Dr. Kelly M. Schultz and Seth Lindberg at Procter & Gamble recently published a paper entitled "Using μ2rheology to quantify rheological properties during repeated reversible phase transitions of soft matter" in Lab on a Chip. In this paper, a microfluidic device is designed to measure repeated phase transitions, gelation and degradation, on a single sample by exchanging the surrounding fluid while minimizing shear stress. This device enables quantitative microrheological characterization of material properties over multiple phase transitions, determining whether the material returns to the same equilibrium state.

Lab on a Chip is a Royal Society of Chemistry journal that focuses on "devices and applications on the micro- and nanoscale." In addition to the publication, Matt's paper was selected as a HOT article and featured on the Lab on a Chip blog. A HOT article is chosen by the handling editor and is a top 10% article published in Lab on a Chip. "This selection is based on the exceptionally positive referee reports that the manuscript received during peer review, along with the Editor’s assessment of the significance and impact of the paper.
