Blood Sweat and Tears An NBMC Workshop

InterNano - Upcoming Events - 1 hour 41 min ago
August 18, 2015 - Mark your calendar for a workshop to explore how nano-bio electronics is changing the collection and analysis of important biological fluids. In clinical settings, the health status of an individual is often determined from careful monitoring of physiological vital signs (such as heart rate, temperature, etc.) and through testing of bodily fluids and biochemical markers (such as glucose, blood gases, electrolytes, proteins, etc.). Periodic methods of collection and analysis of markers pose challenges when a continuous stream of information is more useful, especially when monitoring conditions where clotting, infection and irritation risks are important. In this workshop, we will explore the research and development underway to enable continuous monitoring through the collection and analysis of alternative sources such as interstitial fluid, sweat, saliva and tears. We will explore new products which promise non-invasive or minimally invasive paths to biochemical markers. Since the concentration of biomarkers in these body fluids may be significantly different than clinically standardized blood and urine sources, new methods of analysis will also need development, affording opportunities for those exploring these markets. The Blood, Sweat and Tears Workshop focuses on all the body fluid modalities for assessing biomarkers in both the health and human performance domains. What are the advantages and challenges for each fluid modality in correlating the analytical information with the human condition? What is the feasibility for cost-effective continuous monitoring, and how can continuous monitoring be best utilized?

GraphITA 2015

InterNano - Upcoming Events - 1 hour 41 min ago
September 14, 2015 - GraphITA lands back in Italy !! The fourth edition of the GraphX conference series, once again \"GraphITA\", will take place in Bologna (September 14-18 2015). GraphITA 2015 will follow three previous successful events: GRAPHEsp2014 (Lanzarote Spain), GrapHEL 2012 (Mikonos Greece), and GraphITA 2011 (L\'Aquila, Italy). Since the seminal event of GraphITA 2011, graphene based research has witnessed an incredible expansion, which, for example, in Europe has culminated with the launch of the Graphene Flagship, one of the largest ever financed research initiative of the old continent. In particular, in the very last years, not only graphene but a wide class of 2D materials beyond graphene (Silicene, BN, MoS2) were attracting the interest of both research institutions and private stakeholders. GraphITA2015 aims at keeping the spirit of the previous editions, bringing together scientists and engineers working on different technological uses not only of graphene, but also of 2D materials beyond graphene, in a multidisciplinary and multisectorial (academia/industry) environment. As in the previous editions, participation of early stage researchers, PhD students and post-docs is strongly encouraged, with a particular care to all the emerging countries, south and east Europe.
