Event Details:

Research on innovative biosensing devices has potential to improve the health of individuals and populations. Stanford University professors investigate novel approaches to detect biomarkers of illnesses such as sepsis, cancers, influenza, depression and more.  Wearable and point-of-care diagnostics could allow testing that is faster, less invasive, more frequent and/or remote from the clinic. Illness may be detected earlier and treated more effectively using data from future biosensors.
