This workshop will explore what it means to make “good trouble.” Making "good trouble", as described by Civil Rights Leader and Congressman John Lewis is doing “something out of the ordinary,” to make “a way out of no way.” As per Flint and Toledo (2021): "Troubling is about how we relate as we live and become together in the world." Together, we will use the concept of 'troubling' as a framework that notices and names injustices. We will also consider how we can create new ways of relating to one another in order to coexist in a good way.

In this talk, Hamid Tali will present how the development of cost-effective and portable analytical devices holds significant importance in public healthcare, offering opportunities for environmental monitoring and accessible disease diagnostics to prevent and control various health issues. Microfluidic paper-based analytical devices (μPADs) and tablet-based assay platforms exhibit considerable potential for point-of-use applications due to their low cost, portability, and user-friendliness. However, several challenges persist in maximizing the effectiveness of these platforms, including complex fabrication methods, limited precision, cumbersome assay procedures, short stability and shelf-life, and prolonged assay durations. During his Ph.D. program, he has worked on addressing these challenges with innovative approaches through several objectives and projects. I) As the first objective, he introduced a simplified fabrication method for μPADs via Parafilm-heating-laser-cutting that was then used to create engineered detection zones to enhance color uniformity and, in turn, precision. II) Then, he created a temperature-actuated valve for μPADs using gelatin as a ready-to-use hydrogel to give disposable programmable μPADs to automate complex multi-step assays. III) A strategy for the development of long-term stable electrochemical μPADs was introduced via polysaccharide encapsulation of bioreagents. IV) Novel tablets were developed with reduced working period and enhanced ease of use. These objectives introduce pioneering methods that have the potential to significantly broaden the applicability of both μPADs and tablet-based assays, paving the way for their commercialization.
