SystemX Seminar

Topic: 
Technology for Measuring Biomolecules in Real-Time
Thursday, December 3, 2015 - 4:30pm to 5:30pm
Venue: 
Y2E2 111
Speaker: 
Professor Tom Soh (Stanford)
Abstract / Description: 

If we had the technology than can measure specific biomolecules inside of bodies in "real time", it would transform medicine by providing clinicians with a valuable window into patients' health and their response to therapies. Unfortunately, such real-time measurements are currently not possible, except for a handful of molecules such as glucose. In this presentation, we will discuss recent advancements in "real-time biosensors." As examples, we will present our group's work on continuously measuring anti-cancer and anti-bacterial drugs in live animals with unprecedented time-resolution. Finally, we will discuss the exciting possibility of actively controlling these molecules inside of patients using closed-loop feedback control.
