Illinois Nano EP Seminar Series Spring 2011: Interfacing Engineering, Biology, and Medicine at the Micro and Nano Scale

By Rashid Bashir

Published on


Nanotechnology and BioMEMS can have a significant impact on medicine and biology in a wide range of applications in diagnostics, therapeutics, and tissue engineering. In this talk, we will present an overview of our work in Silicon-Based BioMEMS and Bionanotechnology and discuss the state of the art and the future challenges and opportunities. We will review a range of projects in our group focused towards developing rapid detection of biological entities and developing point of care devices using electrical or mechanical phenomenon at the micro and nano scale. We will present our work on developing point of care biochips for electrical detection of CD4+ cells, and use of mechanical sensors for characterization of living cells. Our recent efforts on 3-D bio-fabrication for development of engineered tissue and biological machines will also be presented.


Prof. Rashid Bashir is Distinguished Lecturer, Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory Director, Prof. of ECE and Bioengineering
