25th May 2010: Wolfson Medical School, Glasgow University, Scotland, UK
This course provides a tutorial style introduction to the rapidly emerging field of Nanobiosensors. It will serve as a prelude to the high-level research papers and reviews that will follow in the main Congress – Biosensors 2010. Topics will be covered in depth and at a fundamental level in order to furnish participants with a detailed understanding of the science, ethical issues and commercial prospects behind this rapidly evolving topic.
Nanotechnology is exerting increasing influence on how we understand, design and build new analytical devices to unravel the conundrums of systems biology and deliver novel bioelectronic devices. Whether it is the challenge of integrating millions of assays on a single chip or developing a tiny biocompatible artificial cell for implantation, the art of engineering to nanometre tolerances or building supramolecular machinery offers us new phenomena to tackle key medical and environmental issues. This course will cover the concepts, materials, engineering principles, barriers and market opportunities opened up by this new integrating discipline.
- The one-day course will comprise 6 lectures and a lunchtime discussion session introducing different aspects of nanobiosensors, from the basic fundamentals to the various applications.
- The course will run from 09:00 to 17:00. Refreshments and lunch will be provided.
