Hydrogel-Based Optical Sensors - Harvard University

Semester: 

Summer

Offered: 

2015

Photonic hydrogels have emerged as rapid, reusable, and quantitative biosensors for application in point-of-care diagnostics. The advantages of photonic hydrogel sensors over conventional sensors is that they have label-free, continuous, reversible sensing capability that can be integrated with personalized medicine technologies. In this lecture, I overview (i) the principle of operation of biosensors that incorporate optical components, (ii) the syntheses of stimuli responsive hydrogels, (iii...

Entrepreneurship ETECH - University of Cambridge

Semester: 

Spring

Offered: 

2014

ETECH Projects are run by the Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (CfEL), University of Cambridge Judge Business School to assess the commercial viability of novel technologies coming out of the departments of the University of Cambridge and local companies. ‘ETECH Projects’ are performed by teams of students from the University of Cambridge. These students either see themselves as would-be entrepreneurs, as those who will assess the commercial viability of business ideas, propositions or novel technologies in their career, or those who see themselves in a similar position...
