This week’s Department of Biology weekly seminar, Wednesday January 29, noon, Barnes Hall, Room 221:
Topic: Nanobioelectronics: Convergence of Microsystems, Nanotechnology and Bioengineering
Speaker: Dr. Shyam Aravamudhan, Assistant Professor, Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering
Abstract: Nanobioelectronics is an emerging field at the intersection of semiconductor nano/microfabrication, biology, and electronics, with the goal of novel devices for disease diagnostics, regenerative medicine, and even for advanced computing. In this talk, Dr. Aravamudhan will present the current work being done in the lab in this emerging field with a particular emphasis on (a) multi-modal diagnostic device-on-chip, (b) microsystem-based regenerative tissue engineering and (c) methods to understand toxicity of engineering nanomaterials.
