BioMEMS – from Stone Age to High Tech


The development of highly sensitive diagnostic and monitoring tools that extends well beyond human senses and perception is an essential strategy for more cost-effective and practical health and environmental maintenance. Today, micromachined sensor systems are being successfully adapted and adopted to bring leading-edge technologies that transfer significant benefits of micromachining and integration to the fields of medicine and environmental monitoring. The acceleration in micromachined sensors’ implementation is primarily due to their potential for integration, device miniaturization, low power consumption, better performance, lower cost and higher reliability. This seminar introduces engineering and science students and researchers to BioMEMS, a new generation of high-performance devices for medical application. Various types of biosensors are introduced and their potential for routine treatment efficiency monitoring are explained.


About the speaker:

Dr. Arezoo Emadi is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. She joined the University of Windsor in July 2017. Dr. Emadi received her Ph.D. degree from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Manitoba and her Licentiate Degree from the Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience at the Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden. She is a Senior Member of IEEE, a Professional Engineer and an active member of the Windsor Cancer Research Group. Dr. Emadi’s research activities revolve around the area of Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS), medical MEMS sensors and transducers, bio and chemical sensors, advanced diagnosis sensor technologies, micro and nano electronic devices and fabrication and medical imaging systems. She has focused her effort on advanced micromachining techniques to create opportunities for the development of revolutionary new sensors that are small enough for integration into microelectronic systems and instrumentation, more easily deployable in a multitude of sensing applications and capable of sensing unique aspects of the environment more accurately, safely, and reliably than ever before. Her ongoing research efforts emphasize on advancing sensor technologies toward early detection and electronic nose concept.
