DIY BIOSENSORS Summer 2014 Workshop
08 Jul 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Kaustubh Bhalerao
Learn how to build a simple, low cost sensor to detect spoiled milk using simple materials that illustrate cool concepts such as microﬂuidics, sample processing and biodetection.In this project you will design microﬂuidic patterns, construct them out of clear plastic ﬁlm, add...
[Illinois] DIY BIOSENSORS Day 3 Summer 2014 Workshop
03 Jul 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Kaustubh Bhalerao
In Day 3, the students continue building their first models of the biosensors. Once completed, they test out their newly-built biosensor with spoiled milk and evaluate their design. The students then start designing their second prototype. At the end, then discussed and reevaluated their...
[Illinois] DIY BIOSENSORS Day 4 Summer 2014 Workshop
28 Jun 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Kaustubh Bhalerao
In Day 4, the second prototype biosensors continued to be tested. The thought process of building an effective biosensor was then discussed. There were five steps taken: the design objective, design criteria, first prototype, lessons learned, and second prototype. Each of these steps was then...
[Illinois] DIY BIOSENSORS Day 5 Summer 2014 Workshop
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...
[Illinois] DIY BIOSENSORS Day 2 Summer 2014 Workshop
In Day 2, the students start out by brainstorming a design for their biosensor and the shape that they will cut it in. The students start their first prototype and build throughout the video.This nanoBIO node workshop is a one week intensive high school Workshop on biosensors led by Kaustubh...
[Illinois] DIY BIOSENSORS Day 1 Summer 2014 Workshop
26 Jun 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Kaustubh Bhalerao
In Day 1, the lecture starts out by discussing the three definitions of a biosensor. These definitions are: something that measures a physical process, something that measures a molecular signature of a process, or a sensor that uses biological materials that may or may not measure biological...
[Illinois] Cooperation and Construction: From Multicellularity to Eusociality
28 Apr 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Corina Tarnita
The evolutionary trajectory of life on earth is one of increasing size and complexity. Yet the standard equations of evolutionary dynamics describe mutation and selection among similar organisms that compete on the same level of organization. I will try to outline a mathematical theory that...
[Illinois] Biomaterials to Replicate the Form and Function of Inhomogeneous Structures in the Body
28 Apr 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Brendan Harley
The extracellular matrix (ECM) is a complex organization of structural proteins such as collagens and proteoglycans. Understanding that the ECM is dynamic and often spatially patterned or heterogeneous over the length-scale of traditional biomaterials, we are developing instructive biomaterials...
[Illinois] Plasmonic Engineering in Nanomedicine
28 Apr 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Srikanth Singamaneni
Plasmonics involves the control of light at the nanoscale using surface plasmons. One particular area where plasmonics is expected to make an enoromous impact is the field of life sciences, with applications in bioimaging, biosensing, and targted and externally-triggered therapy. In the first...
[Illinois] Beckman Director's Seminar: Computational Imaging of Biological Membranes and Membrane Proteins
11 Apr 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Emad Tajkhorshid
Advanced scientific research and technological development increasingly rely on detailed descriptions of the underlying phenomena at higher resolutions, both spatially and temporally. Modern biochemical and biophysical research, in particular, has experienced tremendous progress over the last...
[Illinois] How to Break the "Fundamental" Limits of Nanobiosensing
07 Apr 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam
As the future of Moore’s law of transistor scaling appears uncertain, electronics is being reinvented by broadening the focus to other areas including macroelectronics (electronics of large, possibly flexible and transparent displays), bioelectronics (e.g., nanobio sensors for genomics,...
