Suds & Science: The Internet of Biology

The Internet of Biology: How Graphene Biosensors Are Giving People Instant Access To Their Biology

Knowing what is happening inside your body is virtually impossible, e.g., is the medication you took working or do you have the flu or a bacterial infection? While the internet and the digital ecosystem have enabled instant personal access to most facts, the parts of our lives governed by biology are still shockingly unavailable. Nanomedical Diagnostics’ state-of-the-art graphene-based biosensors are connecting biology directly to the Internet of Biology; thus shining the light on biological unknowns for the first time. Join Dr. Francie Barron, Vice President of Research & Development and Regulatory Affairs for Nanomedical Diagnostics, as she walks us through what is a graphene-based biosensor, the challenges with FDA regulation, and how Nanomed is empowering San Diego innovators to give us the knowledge to access our biology and impact our health.

About Suds & Science:

Sometimes, the most interesting discussions occur over a beer or a glass of your favorite vino. (Bonus points if you can remember what was said the next morning!) That’s the concept behind Suds & Science, a monthly event that brings scientists face-to-face with the general public in a neighborhood bar. Each session kicks off with a short and enlightening presentation, after which the floor is open for discussion between the audience and the speaker. We cover a wide variety of topics that can range from the science of beer to superhero physics to the genius of genomes. We invite you to come, sit back, sip your favorite beverage and participate in the discussion. Suds & Science puts the fun and spirit(s) back into learning.
