Meet Our Researchers

Researchers around the globe trust WPI products. Here are a few who have shared glimpses into their research areas. If you would like to share your story, please email us at wpi@wpiinc.com.

Meet Dr. Delany Rodriguez

Delany Rodriguez, PhD is a researcher at the De Tomaso Laboratory at UC Santa Barbara working with colonial ascidians to study the aging process on the vascular system. His goal is to improve our "health span," not just the life span. Dr. Delany is using WPI microinjection pumps and needles. Want more information. See these research articles from Dr. Delany.

Meet Dr. Chuanzhen Zhao

Chuanzhen Zhao, a 4th year Ph.D. student at UCLA, works in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry and the Department of Psychiatry with Prof. Paul S. Weiss and Prof. Anne M. Andrews. They are developing biosensors with the femtomolar (10^-15 moles/L) range detection limit in the physiological environment for neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and dopamine, which may be used in ex vivo, in vitro, and in vivo studies. He is interested in developing next-generation bioelectronics towards implantable neural recording probes, point-of-care devices, and wearable sensor systems. In his research, Chuanzhen uses WPI silver/silver chloride reference electrodes. You can find the research papers here:
