- Discuss what biomedical nanotechnology is, and how it is likely to impact research and clinical care in the next decade
- Explain how semiconductor nanoparticles and magnetic nanoparticles can provide new, high-resolution images in a broad range of diagnostic applications.
- Describe how new chip-based rapid diagnostic technology will allow for rapid point-of-care diagnosis of viral infections, and analysis of immune system function.
Dr. Miller is a Professor of Dermatology, Biochemistry and Biophysics, and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Rochester. He completed his undergraduate studies at Miami University, receiving degrees in Chemistry (BS), Mathematics (BA), and German (BA). He received his PhD in Chemistry from Stanford University. Dr. Miller joined the University of Rochester faculty in 1996. Research in the Miller group focuses on two fundamental areas: the control of biomolecular interactions through the synthesis of new small-molecule probes, and the observation of biomolecular interactions through the development of novel optical sensing technologies.
