Title: MEMS and Nano: Medical Micro Devices and Systems




The presentation introduces the advances in MEMS micro-electro-mechanical system devices with a focus on their applications in clinical uses. They are integrated with wireless energy transfer techniques, miniature electrochemical sensors, nanoparticle modified surfaces, and wireless communication for batteryless implants in chronic pain management and diagnosis of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Microfluidic devices were developed by MEMS techniques for prostate cancer cell migration study in order to assay patient¡¦s bloods to identify metastatic risks.


These applications enable new medicines to improve human welfare and assist better living.
