Diagnosing Ourselves--Biotechno­logy in Your Back Pocket

Hi Ladies,

I went to the cancer lecture series, and wow, what a "Takeaway" of information that is useful to our daily lives--

This should be interesting and applicable as well--

Something from their web page

Our ability to monitor and maintain our health still largely relies on interactions with the medical community. This dependence is especially unfortunate in resource-poor settings, where the medical community is already stretched thin. What advances are being made to allow people without medical training to readily detect things like viruses? Can such biotechnology help us understand our own unique physiology? Dr. Andy Ellington will discuss exciting advances in low-cost, personalized diagnostics and the promise of creating virtual clinical trials through social networks to improve healthcare on a global scale.

Dr. Ellington’s research focuses on using evolutionary techniques to engineer biopolymers and cells. Researchers in his lab select binding species (aptamers) and ribozymes from random sequence populations. They then attempt to apply the selected species to solve real-world problems. For example, his lab members are exploring how aptamers can be used to block viral replication. His team has also developed methods for evolving proteins with novel functions, and they are attempting to use the evolved proteins in medical or biotechnological applications.

Hope to see you there

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
