Workshop on nanotechnology enabled sensors and diagnostics
(Nanowerk News) Cornell's Nanobiotechnology Center (NBTC) and colleagues in Ireland are co-hosting an International Workshop on Nanotechnology Enabled Sensors and Diagnostics, June 4-5 at Dublin City University, Ireland.
Six NBTC faculty members and seven postdoctoral associates and graduate students will present research advances in such areas as: ultrasensitive sensors and diagnostic devices; micro- and nanofabricated devices for single-cell studies; and nanoparticle-based sensors and diagnostics.
Cornell scientists also will share research results and ideas with colleagues at the Biomedical Diagnostics Institute at Dublin City University and the Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials Research Institute at the University of Ulster.
The event builds on collaborations between the NBTC and Dublin City University, which have included the exchange of undergraduate students and participation by live videoconference in the center's nanobiotechnology course.
