Tohid Didar
Assistant Professor, Mechanical Engineering

Before joining McMaster University in 2016, Dr. Tohid Didar was a postdoctoral fellow at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University. There he designed and developed a robust and clinically relevant extracorporeal dialysis-like treatment (DLT) device for sepsis treatment, leveraging medical grade hollow fiber filters. He obtained his PhD degree in 2013 from McGill University. His doctoral research was focused on design and development of miniaturized devices for label-free and high-throughput sorting, detection and in vitro culture of primary and rare cells. During his PhD studies, he was a research fellow at Harvard University, a member of NSERC-Create Integrated Sensor Systems training program and a visiting researcher at the National Research Council of Canada. Dr. Didar has several patented technologies in microfluidics and bio-functional interfaces as well as over 50 journal and conference publications and invited talks.
