Counting Molecules, Dodging Blood Cells: Continuous, Real-time Molecular Measurements Directly in the Living Body: Nano Seminar Series

4 LeConte Hall
  • Prof. Kevin W. Plaxco, UC Santa Barbara, Bioengineering / Chemistry
The availability of technologies capable of tracking the levels of drugs, metabolites, and biomarkers in real time in the living body would revolutionize our understanding of health and our ability to detect and treat disease. Imagine, for example, a dosing regime that, rather than relying on your watch (“take two pills twice a day”), is instead guided by second-to-second measurements of...
