Hands-on NanoBio Fluidic Mems Workshop

Posted on May 12, 2006

Georgia Institute of Technology will explore the cutting-edge of nanotechnology in its Hands-On NanoBio Fluidic MEMS Workshop on June 26-29 in Atlanta.

Learn how small small really is. Gain hands-on biosensor fabrication experience. Build the needed foundation to design, fabricate, test, and implement next-generation biosensors.

The workshop features Georgia Tech experts and industry professionals including:

  • Gary W. Hunter is the technical lead for the Chemical Species Gas Sensors Team and lead for Intelligent System Hardware in the Sensors and Electronics Branch at the NASA Glenn Research Center.
  • Zhong Lin Wang, Georgia Tech's Regents' Professor in the School of Material Science and Engineering and director of the Center for Nanostructure Characterization and Fabrication, is interested in the synthesis and properties of nanowire and nanotube materials; synthesis and characterization of photonic crystals; self-assembly of magnetic nanocrystals; and semiconductor quantum dots and wires.

The workshop is designed for scientists, mechanical and electrical engineers, technical managers, professors, post-doctorate researchers, and graduate and senior students.

Course fees include:

  • Professionals: Hands-on labs: $1,995; lecture only: $1,250
  • Students: Hands-on labs: $950; lecture only: $350
