Integrated Plasmonic Biosensors: from Critical Care Medicine to Airborne Virus Monitoring Katsuo Kurabayashi, PhDProfessor, Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering and Computer ScienceUniversity of Michigan, Ann Arbor Abstract:Nanoparticle-based plasmonic biosensors are label-free, robust, rapid, cost-effective, and easy to integrate into miniaturized fluidic microsystems. These advantageous features make plasmonic biosensors promising candidates for point-of-care testing (POCT) of...

Vasculature-on-chip models for studying metastasis and the tumor microenvironment Sarah Shelton, PhDPostdoctoral Research FellowMassachusetts Institute of Technology and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute Microphysiological systems or “organ-on-chip” devices are three-dimensional models of simplified biological tissue that have greatly expanded the types of experiments and hypotheses that can be explored in vitro in recent years. My work focuses...

BME Seminar Series: Patrick Link, PhD

1003 (Tong Auditorium) Engineering Centers Building 1550 Engineering Drive, Madison, WI

Engineering cell/ECM interactions in lung disease Patrick Link, PhDPostdoctoral Research FellowDepartment of Physiology and Biomedical EngineeringMayo Clinic Abstract:Cell characteristics are regulated through a variety of mechanisms, such as cytokines, the mechanical environment, or epigenetics. In lung diseases, abnormal regulation of multiple mechanisms combine to determine a shift from a healthy state toward a disease state....
