[Illinois] Nanopore Sequencing of DNA
04 Oct 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Aleksei Aksimentiev
The idea of using a nanopore to sequence DNA continues to generate excitement among scientists and entrepreneurs. The spectacular progress in using biological enzymes to enable nanopore sequencing indicates the imminent arrival of nanopores in practical biomedical applications. Even more exciting...

Optical BioMEMS Microfluidic Technologies for Hand-Held, Point-of-Care, Medical Devices
23 Nov 2009 | | Contributor(s):: James Leary
Portable, point-of-care, medical diagnostic devices could provide an important new component in more cost-effective healthcare delivery. Rapid measurements of blood samples during an examination within a doctor’s office or in the field, could allow immediate appropriate treatment of medical...
Illinois Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology and Nano-CEMMS: A Hard Day in the Life of a Soft Cell
12 May 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Jeffrey Fredberg
AHard Day in the Life of a Soft CellWith every beat of the heart, inflation of the lung, or peristalsis of the gut, cell types of diverse function are subjected to substantial stretch. But what physical laws govern the abilities of the cytoskeleton to deform, contract, and remodel at the...

Multiscale Methods to Simulate and Predict Membrane Organization: atomistic molecular dynamics to mean field Langevin dynamics
08 Aug 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Larry H. Scott, Omar N Sobh
There is considerable interest in the lateral organization of biological membranes. While membrane proteins obviously influence on the localized properties of membranes, the lipids themselves also can self-organize within the bilayer. Computational models can complement the growing body of...

Nanocomposite-Modified Electrodes for Sensing Biological Analytes
30 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: V. Yegnaraman
Electrochemical sensing of analytes is mostly enabled by transducers based on potentiometry and amperometry. In this, design of sensing (working) electrode is of utmost importance since it only decides the sensitivity and selectivity features of the sensor. Chemical modification of the electrode...
Strategies for Preparation and Manufacture of Polymer-based Nanoparticulate Formulations
21 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Stephen R. Byrn
Nanoparticles hold great promise for drug delivery applications. Several polymer-based formulations containing nanoparticles are in late phase development or on the market. In fact, polymer dispersions provide one of the best methods to prepare nanoparticles of small-molecule organic drugs....
