From the C3B Director

The Center for Bioelectronics, Biosensors and Biochips is a University center for molecular bioanalytics and biometrology that operates as an Industry/University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC). The Center focuses on the development of platform technologies that are of mutual interest to the industrial consortium members and faculty while providing education and training opportunities for science, technology engineering and mathematics (STEM) oriented high school students, science teachers, undergraduates, graduate students and post-doctoral trainees.

 The C3B’s platform projects include; a) a DNA diagnostic biochip for clinical classification of primary brain tumor, b) an electronic NOSE for physiologic status monitoring during trauma, c) a cell-based biosensor for chemical toxicity testing as an alternative to the use of whole animals, d) reagentless biosensors using carbon nanotubes that exploit the bioelectrochemistry of oxidoreductase enzymes, and e) an implantable glucose and lactate biosensor for trauma monitoring.

 The C3B is organized into four principal laboratories, i) a biosensors laboratory, ii) a biomaterials and biointerfaces laboratory, iii) a DNA biochips laboratory, and iv) a signal processing and bioinformatics laboratory. While a single university center, the C3B focuses on highly plura-disciplinary, multi-investigator research around its platform technologies and accordingly has leveraged expertise and capabilities through collaborative research programs with faculty and investigators at other institutions.

We welcome your inquires regarding our Center and look forward to your involvement in the exciting work and challenges of defining our future.
