This course will cover the basic concepts of design of integrated nanomedical systems for diagnostics and therapeutics. Topics to be covered include: why nanomedical approaches are needed, cell targeting strategies, choice of core nanomaterials, technologies for testing composition and structure of multilayered nanomedical systems, optimizing zeta potentials, design and testing of cell and intracellular targeting systems, in-vivo issues, drug delivery and proper dosing, assessing efficacy of drug/gene delivery, nanotoxicity, animal testing, and regulatory issues. In addition to attending lectures and participating in classroom discussions, students will write and present an original research nanomedical system design project. This course will serve as an interdisciplinary training for doctoral students in Biomedical Engineering and other fields for a basic understanding of the principles and challenges of nanomedicine.

This presentation demonstrates how the classical diffusion-capture (D-C) model has improved sensor performance, since the D-C model is a \“geometry of diffusion\” rather than a \“geometry of electrostatics.\” A scaling law based on D-C is also posited; the scaling law resolves many classical puzzles and aids the interpretation of experiments to date with a simple coherent framework.

The ability to read the book of life, written in the genome of an organism, has been one of the most exciting development of our time. The first version of human genome was announced circa 2000 and it took a decade of industrial-scale collaboration and billions of dollars of funding. Today, we do the same for a few hundred dollars, and in a few hours time. In merely 10 years, the reactors that covered a football field has been reduced to the size of a postage-stamp. I will explain how a synthesis of electronics and biotechnology, especially the use of electronic biosensor made of i-phone scale transistors, has made this fantastic development possible.

In this talk, I will discuss an elementary theory of the role of nanostructured electrodes in addressing some of the challenges from a fundamentally different perspective. The goal is to start a conversation regarding the viability of the approaches suggested and see if the perspective offered is realistic and relevant.

This presentation is a tutorial for plotting higher quality figures by Matlab. Basic elements of plots are introduced and the way to manipulate these elements by coding is explained. Tow methods for dual axis plotting is described. At the end an approach to print figures automatically (by coding) is described.

Characterizing the mechanical properties of materials using indentation has been around for centuries. It has recently emerged as the technique of choice for evaluating and characterizing hard and soft tissue. Recent work on mechanotransduction – the transduction of biological signals through mechanical signals also provides fertile ground for work in this area. It has also been used in understanding the different cell functions and…
