Abstract
Silicon nanotechnology is omnipresent in the devices we use every day. The scale and capabilities of the underlying manufacturing platform holds an enormous potential for application domains beyond computing. Particularly in healthcare, we believe that the impact of such customized nanotechnologies will be profound, in health and disease, and across therapeutic areas. I will show how silicon nanotechnology is already exploited to perform measurements, from the genome to the brain, at a scale and speed that were unfathomable just a few years ago. I will then provide a future perspective covering areas such as non-invasive monitoring of key biomarkers, point-of-need diagnostics, and organ-on-chip.
Dr. Peumans holds a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Princeton University, and a bachelor's and master's degree in engineering from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. Prior to joining imec, Dr. Peumans was a professor of electrical engineering at Stanford University where his work focused on large area electronics, solar energy conversion and biomedical electronics. He is the recipient of an NSF CAREER award and a Belgian-American Educational Foundation honorary fellowship. He currently leads imec's life science technologies program.
