The abstract of his talk is shown below:
Lab-on-a-chip (LOC) devices have a tremendous potential for revolutionizing personal health. In the U.S., patients and consumers can have greater access to traditionally complex diagnostics, and in developing countries, mobile diagnostics provides immediate diagnosis in the field. We will discuss our lab's current efforts in these areas, in con-junction with partners in industry, public health, and local governments. Our tests span a variety of technologies, and target HIV, sexually transmitted diseases, and chronic diseases.
