NBMC Wearable Electronics Technology & Applications in Health & Human Performance

InterNano - Upcoming Events - May 1, 2014 - 9:03am
May 22, 2014 - Join this workshop to examine the growing interest and technical advancements in flexible electronics for wearable health and human performance sensors, including biometric and biomarkers sensors. Speakers confirmed and/or invited thus far include: Army Research Lab, GE Healthcare, PARC, a Xerox Company, MC10, Air Force Research Lab, Dublin City University, Under Armour, Nano-Bio Manufacturing Consortium. Current state of the art in human performance monitoring includes measurements such as heart rate, blood pressure, and skin temperature. Future monitoring will rely on real time biomarker analysis of cognitive effectiveness, stress levels, fatigue and vigilance receptors, organ damage and exposure to chemical or biological agents. The requirements and challenges for these products will be discovered, including biomarker discovery, analysis and reporting approaches. The application of printed electronics technology and hybrid solutions in these products will be presented along with the critical new manufacturing techniques including roll to roll and self-assembly solutions. - Niskayuna, NY

New MIT Building will be a Hub for Nanoscale Research

National Nanomanufacturing Network - April 30, 2014 - 10:49am
Starting in 2018, researchers from across MIT will be able to take advantage of comprehensive facilities for nanoscale research in a new building to be constructed at the very heart of the Cambridge campus. The 200,000-square-foot building, called "MIT.nano," will house state-of-the-art cleanroom, imaging, and prototyping facilities supporting research with nanoscale materials and processes - in fields including energy, health, life sciences, quantum sciences, electronics, and manufacturing. An estimated 2,000 MIT researchers may ultimately make use of the building, says electrical engineering professor Vladimir Bulović, faculty lead on the MIT.nano project and associate dean for innovation in the School of Engineering.
