York Society of Engineers Open Lecture

Hybrid biomolecular electronics is a rapidly growing area of research focussed on the integration, detection and manipulation of biological molecules, such as DNA, peptides and proteins, with nanoelectronic devices. The ultimate goal is to develop bio-electronic systems that merge the functions and properties of biological systems, such as chemical synthesis, mechanical motion and molecular recognition with the world of electronics. This talk will discuss recent research in this area, focussing in particular on bio-inspired fabrication of nanoelectronic devices, electronic immunosensor arrays for clinical diagnostics and molecular computation.
