Advances in informatics, nanotechnology, and deeper understanding of biological systems have provided new opportunities to make fundamental advances in sensing and dynamic control of engineered systems. BioSensing-BioActuation (BSBA) is a developing new research frontier that will profoundly impact both engineering and biological sciences in sensing/actuation science and technologies, and could has the potential for bringing a paradigm shift in engineering and biological research by creating new, truly cross-disciplinary research methodologies. BSBA refers to an emergent research area that aims at developing novel bio-derived and bio-inspired sensing/actuation technologies based on the fundamental understanding of biological systems. It is highly interdisciplinary by nature, drawing expertise from biology, engineering, computer science, materials science, and mathematics.
Rashid Bashir completed his BSEE from Texas Tech University as the highest ranking graduate in the College of Engineering in Dec 1987. He completed his MSEE from Purdue University in 1989 and Ph.D. from Purdue University in 1992. From Oct 1992 to Oct 1998, he worked at National Semiconductor in the Analog/Mixed Signal Process Technology Development Group where he was promoted to Sr. Engineering Manager. He joined Purdue University in Oct 1998 as Assistant Professor and was later promoted to Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and a Courtesy Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. Since Oct 2007, he is the Abel Bliss Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering & Bioengineering, Director of the Micro and NanoTechnology Laboratory (a campus wide clean room facility) at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and Director of the campus-side Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology, a collaboratory aimed to facilitate center grants and large initiatives around campus in the area of nanotechnology. He has authored or co-authored over 150 journal papers, over 200 conference papers and conference abstracts, over 120 invited talks, and has been granted 34 patents. He is a fellow of IEEE, AIMBE, AAAS, and APS.
His research interests include BioMEMS, Lab on a chip, nano-biotechnology, interfacing biology and engineering from molecular to tissue scale, and applications of semiconductor fabrication to biomedical engineering, all applied to solve biomedical problems. He has been involved in 2 startups that have licensed his technologies.
In addition to his own research group, he is the PI on an NSF IGERT on Cellular and Molecular Mechanics and Bionanotechnology and PI on an NIH Training Grant on Cancer Nanotechnology. He is also a project lead on an NSF Science and Technology Center on Emergent Behavior of Integrated Biological Systems (head quartered at MIT, and partners at GT and UIUC).
