[Illinois] Bionanotechnology Seminar Series Fall 2012: Mechanical Property Characterization for 3D Collagen Cancer Cell Cultures
08 Mar 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Yue Wang
The tumor microenvironment is mechanically modified during cancer progression. Imaging of tumor mechanical environment will provide new information for early cancer diagnosis. However, it is less clear how the mechanical environment is tuned in cancer. The goal of this study is to understand...
[Illinois] PHYS466 2013 Lecture 12: Constraints
08 Mar 2013 | | Contributor(s):: David M. Ceperley
[Illinois] PHYS466 2013 Lecture 13: Random Number Generators
[Illinois] PHYS466 2013 Lecture 9: Correlations II
[Illinois] ECE 416 Optical Sensors I
06 Mar 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Cunningham
In this lecture, we begin our discussion of Optical Biosensors. We start off by showing the general properties of optical biosensors besides the SPR. Then, we shift our attention to the improvements made to the SPR Sensor's...

[Illinois] PHYS466 2013 Lecture 8: Correlations I
06 Mar 2013 | | Contributor(s):: David M. Ceperley, George Daley
[Illinois] ECE 416 SPR Sensors III
05 Mar 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Cunningham
In this lecture, we continued the SPR Sensors discussion. We started off with the coupling condition being determined by the refractive index. This means that light now goes through a protein. In the experimental results, it shows...

[Illinois] ECE 416 Acoustic Wave Sensors
27 Feb 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Cunningham
In this lecture, we look at the concepts and theories behind the acoustic wave sensor. This sensor communicates through the vibrational waves in matter. The atoms in the system are displaced, causing an Internal Elastic Restoring...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Electrochemical Sensors
In this lecture, we begin discussing the three types of electrochemical sensors: Potentiometric, Amperometric, and Conductometry. The focus of the lecture is the potentiometric and how it is used to measure the potential...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Glucose Sensor I
In this lecture, we continue the discussion on the oxygen sensor. It starts with a review of the measurement of O2 concentration levels through electrical currents. This is called an amperometric meter. Then, the subject shifts to...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Glucose Sensor II
In this lecture, we looked at the three generations of the glucose sensor and the ways it has changed. The first generation was the one discussed in the previous lecture in which the glucose concentration was found based off of...
[Illinois] ECE 416 SPR Sensors I
This lecture was an introduction to Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) Sensors. It started out with an explanation of Coulomb's Law for the force between two charges. This lead to the concept of the electric field and with an applied...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Mass Transport II
26 Feb 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Cunningham
In this lecture, we look at the mass transfer coefficient of association and dissociation rates of molecules on the biosensor and off of it. Having a flow cell speeds it up, but the molecules must get through a stagnant layer to...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Assay Formats
In this lecture, assays, which is the most widely used technique to detect molecules on surfaces are discussed. In the direct assays, there is a "labeled assay" method and a "label-Free Assay" method. The Label-Free Assay method...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Bio Structure/Function II + Mass Transport I
In this lecture, the roles of antibodies and their structures are elaborated on from the last lecture. Then, there is a revision of DNA and RNA: the structure, the base pairs, the different nucleotides and the hydrogen bonds'...
[Illinois] Bioengineering Seminar Series
08 Feb 2013 | | Contributor(s)::
Bioengineering combines the analytical and experimental methods of the engineering profession with the biological and medical sciences to achieve a more detailed understanding of biological phenomena and to develop new techniques and devices. The engineer's quantitative and analytical approach;...
[Illinois] Center for Agricultural, Biomedical, and Pharmaceutical Nanotechnology (CABPN) 2012
CABPN is a National Science Foundation (NSF) Industry/University Cooperative Research Center. Its mission is to conduct industry-relevant fundamental research, enhance graduate education and research, and to facilitate technology transfer to industry.-From the CABPN website
[Illinois] ECE 416 Bio Structure/Function I
07 Feb 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Cunningham
In this lecture, we are given the structure of the protein, its function, role and potentials to the field of biosensors. The parts of the amino acids that make up the proteins are discussed along with bonds and reactions in order...
