Cambridge, MA (PressExposure) March 28, 2014 -- Paul W. Bohn, Arthur J Schmitt Professor of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, University of Notre Dame, to give a presentation titled "Tight Coupling of Chemical Sensing and Reactivity in Nanofluidic Architectures" at the Inaugural Bioanalytical Sensors Conference, May 22 & 23, 2014 in Cambridge, MA.
Paul Bohn received his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He subsequently joined the faculty at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he served in numerous roles, including Head of the Chemistry Department, Director of the School of Chemical Sciences, and the Interim Vice Chancellor for Research. In 2006, he became the Arthur J. Schmitt Professor of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering and Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Notre Dame and serves as the Director of the Advanced Diagnostics and Therapeutics Initiative, which fosters research creating tools to combat disease, promote health, and safeguard the environment.
Dr. Bohn has over 225 publications in the fields of analytical chemistry, materials science, and chemical engineering; has served as Editor for the Americas (2007-2009) and Chair of the Editoral Board (2010-2013) for Analyst; and sits on numerous editorial and scientific boards. In addition to being a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (1998) and the Royal Society of Chemistry (UK, 2008), he has received several awards including the ACS Award in Spectrochemical Analysis (1997), the Bomem-Michelson Award from the Coblentz Society (2005), and the Theophilus Redwood Award of the Royal Society of Chemistry (2010). His research interests include integrated microfluidic and nanofluidic chemical measurement strategies for personal monitoring, chemical and biochemical sensing in mass-limited samples, and molecular approaches to nanotechnology.
This premier conference will host an exciting group of professionals from the academic, biotech, pharmaceutical, and business communities, and will focus on the latest discoveries in the Single Cell Analysis field. A balance of both academic and industry experts will facilitate discussion on the following areas:
I. Advances in Sensor Development
