Due to increasing aging population as well as the number of people suffering from chronic diseases the cost for healthcare services are increasing and putting enormous strain on the national economy.
Wireless sensor technology in combination with the Internet can provide important technical solutions for remote diagnosis and health status monitoring. In this talk we will show by combining synthetic biology, nanotechnologies and electronics, a new complementary nanoscale device technology can be developed for applications like targeted drug delivery, brain-machine interface, Alzheimer’s disease control, etc.
