Department Seminar by Dr. Melikhan Tanyeri

Micro and nanoscale systems for biotechnology and medicine

Dr. Melikhan Tanyeri, Postdoctoral Research Associate

Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Micro and nanotechnology has radically transformed our daily lives by catalyzing a paradigm shift in the development of products and services. Materials, devices and functional structures at the micro & nanoscale have also enabled a number of key advancements in biology and medicine. In my talk, I will give a brief overview of micro/nanotechnology and its applications in biology and medicine, and present examples of enabling technologies towards addressing key questions and challenges in these fields. I will summarize my previous research efforts on developing microsystems with applications to biosensors and manipulation of micro & nanoparticles, and cells.
