Topic:

Emerging nano science and technology for medicine

The emerging area of micro- and nano- science and engineering is leading to an unprecedented comprehension of the fundamental building blocks of nature. This technology will most profoundly affect the nature of science, engineering and medicine in the 21st century. Device structures with characteristic dimensions significantly below 1 micron have led to the investigation of a whole range of novel physical and chemical phenomena. In turn, these new phenomena promise to give rise to a new generation of materials and devices working on completely different physical and chemical principles. The newest frontier to nanotechnology is in medicine. Development of new and novel devices will impact areas ranging from molecular imaging and detection, to bio implants, diagnostic, and micro robotics. The major technological barrier to fabricate functional nanostructures is the ability to synthesize nano-structures of sufficiently small dimension, specific pattern and uniform size distribution. Most importantly, these structures must be directly fabricated into microsystems to allow functionality of the structures. Therefore, the implementations of these systems require advanced technologies to integrate the nanostructures to microsystems as well. Without such integration, the functionality of the nanosystems cannot be realized. New technology such as laser induced self-assembly of nanoarray platforms (SNAP), novel materials synthesis, and atomic-layer engineering are key for the development of devices for applications in biological and chemical sensing systems, microfluidic drug and chemical delivery systems, micro imaging systems, and chronically implantable micro and nano devices. As an example, materials synthesis, micromachining and nano integration in microsystems will be presented for an array of applications including a neurological implants for the central nervous system, guided growth of neurons for spinal cord injuries, probing systems for pathogen and cancer detection, and artificial skin sensor arrays for robotics with 108 greater sensitivity then human skin to name a few.

Biography: Dr. Gregory W. Auner is a Strauss/TEAMS (Technology and Engineering Applications in Medicine and Surgery) Endowed Chair and Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Material Science, and faculty in the Department of Surgery at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. He is the founder and director of the Smart Sensors and Integrated Microsystems (SSIM) program at WSU which encompasses 13 centrally located laboratories over 150 participating faculty, graduate students, staff scientists/engineers, and undergraduate researchers. He has developed an array of instruments, sensors and microsystems for federal institutions, research institutions, and industry. Approximately 80% of his research involves the research and development of biomedical microsystems, nanosystems, and BioMEMS systems. Dr. Auner has formed a consortium within the Smart Sensors Program involving the Karmanos Cancer Institute (Ultrasonic Breast Cancer Detection System) and Children’s Hospital of Michigan (Robotic Surgery and Real-Time Surgical Diagnostics). His SSIM program, along with the Chiefs of Surgery at the Wayne State University School of Medicine, Detroit Medical Center, Karmanos Cancer Institute, Children’s Hospital of Michigan, Beaumont, and Henry Ford Hospital Systems have created the Technology and Engineering Applications in Medicine and Surgery (TEAMS) which is integrating state of the art science and technology into the field of medicine. Dr. Auner’s program is the main microsystems technology for these initiatives. He has over 35 patents (issued and pending) in the last several years for bio implants, chemical, biomedical, and environmental sensors and microsystems. He has over 240 peer reviewed publications. He has received a number of awards including the Strauss Endowed Chair, Induction to the 2007-2008 Class of Leaders & Innovators, WSU Alumni Faculty Service Award, RARE Foundation’s Everyday Hero Award, the Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Advancement of Knowledge, American Society for Reproductive Medicine Dr. Auner was appointed to the National Academies Board on Manufacturing Design and Engineering in 2004. He is also the Co-Founder and Chief Technical Officer at Visca, LLC and MEP, LLC- Wayne State University spin-off companies which is headquartered in Troy, Michigan as Chief Science and Technical Officer.
