In Day 5, each group gave a presentation about the biosensor they had created. They discussed the design objective, design criteria, first prototype, lessons learned, and the second prototype. In trying to depict their biosensor as the best, they learned what is sought from the market when building one: affordability, simplicity, and effectiveness. Then, the students were taken through tour of the labs. Different biosensor building tools and biosensors were shown throughout.
This nanoBIO node workshop is a one week intensive high school Workshop on biosensors led by Kaustubh Bhalerao from the department of Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering at the University of Illinois.
Kaustubh Bhalerao obtained his M.S. and Ph.D degrees from Department of Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering at The Ohio State University in 2001 and 2004 respectively. His doctoral dissertation was on the reliability of micro electromechanical systems used in biological applications (BioMEMS). He is an associate professor and has been a faculty member in the Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering since 2005.
