Nanoengineered Biomedical Devices: Annual Fall Nanotechnology Symposium to Focus on Biomedical Field

Santa Clara, CA | Posted on October 27th, 2013

On November 19th Silicon Valley will showcase a different side of the high-tech revolution. Innovations in electrical engineering have enabled great gains in semiconductors and electronics - the engines that drive Silicon Valley and much of today's economy. Less well known is the way engineering is being applied to biology to change the way we diagnose and treat diseases. This year, the annual Fall meeting of the IEEE Nanotechology Council of the San Francisco Bay Area will focus on nanoscale engineering for biomedical devices. Invited speakers will represent both academic institutions and companies building new tools for biomedical research and the diagnosis and treatment of disease.

The keynote speaker is Professor David Deamer of UC Santa Cruz, a pioneer in the field of nanopore-based DNA sequencing. This technique began as an ambitious academic concept, and there are now over 1800 patent applications for DNA analysis with nanopores from companies including Agilent, Hitachi, and Oxford Nanopore. Prof. Deamer will give a personal account of the development of nanopore sequencing. Other seminar topics will include nanomaterials, such as nanoporous gold foams, used as electrical probes of cell growth, and insights from commercialization of a glucose monitoring device. One of the goals of the meeting, according to conference chair Boaz Vilozny, is bringing together the perspective of academic and industry scientists. "Many students come from academia with training and fresh ideas, but little exposure to the culture and goals of industry. Meetings like this are a way to build relationships that are essential when beginning a career. From the industry side, it is a way to keep up with exciting innovations in nanotechnology from a broad range of disciplines."

This one-day symposium will feature eight seminar speakers from morning through early afternoon, followed by an informal student poster presentation and networking. Attendees can register at sites.ieee.org/sfbanano/2013/09/18/fall-symposium-nanoengineered-biomedical-devices/. Students wishing to present a poster should contact the conference chairs directly. Special rates are included for students and those seeking employment.
