Wednesday 23 May 2018, 1.30PM to 3pm
Speaker(s): Dr Despina Moschou, University of Bath
Lab-on-Chip technology aspires to shrink biomedical laboratories in few cm microchips, in a technological revolution step analogous to the introduction of computer technology in the 20th century. In this presentation Dr Moschou will provide an overview of this technology and its impact on healthcare. She will then focus on manufacturing techniques for integrated Lab-on-Chip biomedical diagnostic chips and in particular the Lab-on-PCB technology that has been the forefront of her work for the past 8 years.
Dr. Despina Moschou (MEng, PhD) is a 50th anniversary Prize Fellow in Bioelectronics, within the Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering at the University of Bath. Since 2010, her main research focus has been to apply her microfabrication and microelectronic device expertise in the development of disposable Lab-On-a-Chip systems for bioanalytical applications (molecular and immunoassay-based Point-of-Care diagnostic devices). For the past 8 years she has been pursuing the Lab-on-Printed Circuit Board approach, in an effort to realize disposable, mass-manufacturable Lab-on-Chip microsystems, engaging with stakeholders across all related disciplines (clinical scientists, microbiologists, chemists, manufacturers, engineers, diagnostic industries).

The Department also runs a programme of Research Student Seminars given by PhD students in their 3rd year of study.
