ConferenceAugust 24, 2015 to August 26, 2015 http://trfnapa.org/ Effective healthcare at manageable cost is an escalating worldwide challenge. This workshop will bring together scientists, engineers, and technologists with experts in the unmet clinical needs, economics, regulation, and commercialization of health care technologies. Our goal is to identify needs and define opportunities for micro- and nano-technologies, materials, and systems to shape and improve our future healthcare landscape. A key workshop theme is "closing the healthcare loop:" managing health through periodic assessment in order to adjust treatments and therapies, as opposed to simply diagnosing, treating, and largely abandoning patients to decide when or if follow-up is needed. A closed-loop approach--one component of which might be personalized medicine--will add costs in additional measurements, diagnostics, and communications between patient and provider even as it saves costs by providing better patient outcomes, heading off health issues before they become medical crises, avoiding hospitalizations, and making more effective use of expensive drugs. Micro and nano technologies must play an enabling role if the savings are to outweigh the added expense. Keynote and invited speakers, together with workshop participants, will describe need-based drivers and resulting breakthroughs utilizing nano- and micro-technologies to shape the future of healthcare: Preventive medicine vs. disease treatment: proactive healthcare Translational medicine Personalized medicine Diagnostics: point of care vs. central lab; home testing vs. distributed labs Drug delivery Synthetic biology Nanomaterials Implantables Wearables Robotics Prosthetics Data -> information -> diagnosis -> action: the role of eHealth & connected Health in closing the loop Role and integration of wireless technologies Manufacturing and the critical role of design and supply chains The workshop format will follow previous Napa Institute workshops: a core of keynote and invited speakers with expertise in the key areas above will be complemented by contributed talks and posters sharing the most recent and relevant scientific and technological developments. Panel discussions will provide a means for group interactions to help define and refine our understanding of the future healthcare "technology landscape." Meals, networking, and social events, including tasting the incomparable Napa Valley wines, will be an integral part of the workshop to promote networking and informal information exchange.

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?
