Aaron Slyder is an undergraduate student from the Physics Department. Welcome, Aaron!
On August 12, the Center of Bioelectronics and Biosensors at Biodesign Institute organized a workshop where everyone introduced their work within 10 minutes (5 min talk, 5 min question). Great fun and party on that night.
Xiangbing is a PhD student in Materials Science and Engineering. He joined the group in August, 2013. Xiangbing is just initiating his rotation project on bionanoelectronics.
If we are smart enough to design the size and structure of the sensor to match that of a single molecule, many physical quantities that used to be buried in bulk environment can become detectable. The capability of manipulating and sequencing biopolymers with great biological significance, for example, DNA chains, down to single-molecule level, can bring paradigm shifts in biological research and biomedical practices.
The dimensional and structural advantages of nanoelectronic sensors and the diverse interaction between live cells and nanomaterials/surfaces provide great opportunity for us to rethink how we can bring artificial electronics and live cells together in the most harmonic way.
The fundamental understanding and capability of engineering materials/structures at atomic/nanoscale is key for revolutionary advances in bioelectronics and biosensors.
The Newport SmartTable and the Baker Biosafety cabinet is now up and running!
Xiangbing Jiao from the Materials Science & Engineering now joins the group. Welcome, Xiangbing!
