Biosensor Technology: Driving Advances in Healthcare

Available On Demand Until August 9, 2019

Biosensors and point-of-care devices are poised to change the delivery of healthcare. This 60-minute Webinar from the editors of Medical Design Briefs explores cutting-edge developments and their role in the future of medical devices.
Biosensor technology can be used in cheap, disposable point-of-care devices or can be used to provide continuous monitoring in implantable devices. Measurement in biomedicine presents unique challenges in both implementation and interpretation. These ideas will be explored with examples from current research including solid microneedle arrays for use in sepsis and therapeutic drug monitoring.
In addition, the Webinar will look at biosensors integrated into wearable devices for continuous health monitoring. Biomarkers can be non-invasively monitored in samples such as saliva and exhaled breath condensate as well as minimally invasively in blood and interstitial fluid using smart wristbands.
An audience Q&A follows the technical presentations.


Mehdi Javanmard, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Rutgers University

Dr. Mehdi Javanmard is Rutgers University’s Assistant Professor of the Electrical/Computer Engineering Department and the Director of the NanoBioElectronics Laboratory, which he founded in 2014 to focus on emerging micro- and nanotechnologies for health and environmental monitoring. The lab’s goals are to develop sensing platforms that decrease cost, increase assay speed, and improve the limit of detection in biomolecular assays. Mehdi received his Ph.D. and master’s degree from Stanford University and a bachelor’s degree from Georgia Institute of Technology.

Luyun Jiang, Ph.D., Technology Analyst, IDTechEx

Dr. Luyun Jiang is a Technology Analyst at IDTechEx, covering the topics of gas sensors, biosensors, DNA technologies, and the Internet of Things. Most recently, she has been working on reports concerning biosensors for point-of-care, lab-on-a-chip, AI in healthcare, and DNA sequencing. She obtained a bachelor’s degree from Nanjing University and a Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Oxford, focusing on carbon nanomaterials and electrochemical biosensors for environmental monitoring. She then worked at the University of Oxford in green technology for energy devices before joining IDTechEx in 2018.

Danny O'Hare, Ph.D., Reader, Sensor Research, Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College

Dr. Danny O’Hare, CChem FRSC, is a Reader in Sensor Research in the Department of Bioengineering at London’s Imperial College. He is a Chartered Chemist and member of the Royal Society of Chemistry. He has worked for many years on electrochemical sensors, lab-chip systems, and biosensors. Biomedical applications have included cell-chip systems for primary endothial cell culture, host-pathogen interactions, and stem cells. More recently he has been working on solid microneedle arrays for in vivo monitoring of antimicrobials in humans and on PNA-based detection of microRNA for diagnostic applications.
