Bionanoscience for Innovative Global Healthcare Research & Technology (BIGHEART)
Luke Lee (University of California, Berkeley)
It is a critical time to solve the problems of the current qualitative biomedical science and healthcare system.
In the first part of the talk, I will present on biophotonic nanosatellites that have multiple functions such as targeting, imaging, gene delivery, and photonic gene circuits in living cells.
Biophotonic nanosatellites allow us real-time cellular galaxy exploration, wireless cellular communications, and dynamic controls of gene circuits in living cells.
In the second part of the talk, I will discuss
- Cellular BASICs (Biologic Application Specific Integrated Circuits) for quantitative cell biology including single stem cell analysis and dynamic cell culture array, which allows simultaneous detection of gene and protein expression,
- Global healthcare diagnostics on chip called Self-powered Integrated Microfluidic Blood Analysis System (SIMBAS) for infectious diseases,
- Optofluidic Application Specific Integrated System (OASIS) for label-free bioassays, and
- Integrated Molecular Diagnostic Systems (iMDs) for preventive personalized medicine.
In summary, I will share my vision for the convergence of science, engineering, and medicine to transform the life sciences, as well as finding the solutions for translational medicine and low-cost healthcare systems.
