Talk Title: Beyond Conventional Medicine with Micro/Nano Technology(利用微纳米技术超越传统医疗科技)

 

Conventional medicine relies on centralized diagnostics and generalized clinical intervention. My research aims to improve clinical outcomes through point-of-care diagnostics and personalized medicine that are enabled by micro/nanotechnology. I will first talk about magnetic digital microfluidics with novel surface features that enable a full-range of droplet manipulations and greatly extend its applicability in point-of-care molecular diagnostics and antimicrobial susceptibility. After that, I will show a novel method for the fabrication of nanostructured materials. I will demonstrate the application of a silica-based hierarchical nanostructured material fabricated using this method in the purification of high molecular weight DNA for third generation single molecule sequencing.
