C3B Reporter On Line

A quarterly report to the faculty and industrial members on activities and developments within the C3B

Fall 2000

The Center for Bioelectronics, Biosensors and Biochips has been officially approved (10/00) by the Dean and Cabinet of the School of Engineering as a School of Engineering designated center. This enables the C3B to establish a consortium of corporate members to directly support multidisciplinary, collaborative research projects with industry.


1. Rosalyn Hobson (Electrical Engineering) and Anthony Guiseppi-Elie (Chemical Engineering) have submitted an abstract entitled "The Applicability of Temperature Correction to Chemoresistive Sensors in an e-NOSE-ANN System". This paper will be presented at the Modeling and Simulation of Microsystems: MSM 2001 Conference. March 19-21, Hilton Head, South Carolina.

2. Anthony Guiseppi-Elie (Chemical Engineering) has, with Dietmar Blohm (Department of Molecular Genetics and Biotechnology, University of Bremen), submitted a paper entitled "New Developments in Microarray Technology" to Current Opinion in Biotechnology: Analytical Biotechnology (2001) 12: 41-47

3. Sean Brahim, Dyer Narinesingh and Anthony Guiseppi-Elie "Electroactive Hydrogels for the Construction of Clinically Important Biosensors" Biosensors & Bioelectronics (submitted for publication).


3. The C3B has submitted a proposal to the VCU Life Sciences Program. This proposal calls for the appointment of two new faculty with teaching and research interests at the interface between Chemical Engineering and Biology and for capital funds to support advanced DNA microarray developments. ($ 255,695 per year over 3 years).

4. Anthony Guiseppi-Elie (Chemical Engineering) and Rob Pearson (Electrical Engineering) have submitted a white paper entitled "Bioelectronic Devices Formed Using Biomolecular Assembly: Specific Placement of Colloidal Gold Nanoparticles onto Microlithographically Fabricated Devices to the Semiconductor Research Council, Cross-Disciplinary Semiconductor Research program. ($40,000)


Several C3B researchers (Sean Brahim, Marin Gheorghe, Anthony Guiseppi-Elie, Chenghong Lei and Gary Wnek) presented papers at the recently concluded FALL 2000 ACS National Meeting, PMSE Symposium on Transducer-active Polymers (TAP2000).

Anthony Guiseppi-Elie will be a keynote speaker at BioChips 2001 BIOCHIPS 2001 - Technology Development & Application. March 12 - 13, 2001 Polytechnic University, Brooklyn, NY Brooklyn, NY USA
