An evening featuring glimpses into the future of medical diagnosis and health monitoring.
Adam Giangreco, The Technology Partnership: '21st century connected healthcare'
TTP works closely with clients to creative disruptive products based on advances in science and technology. Within TTP Adam is involved in developing novel connected healthcare technologies and improving clinical drug discovery. Prior to joining TTP he ran a successful research group within the University College London Division of Medicine.
Toby Gomersall, SmartAccoustics
Building on research done at the University of Cambridge, SmartAccoustics aims to develop technologies that can augment existing ultrasound imaging techniques, with software running on ubiquitous and general purpose computers and embedded devices - improving the cost/quality trade-off.
Dr Jinglin Kong, Biological and Soft Systems Group, Dpt of Physics, Cambridge University
Solid-state nanopore based detection is being actively studied as a versatile tool for single molecule biosensing. Combining solid-state nanopores and designed DNA nanostructures, the Group is developing a novel single molecule biosensing platform as promising candidate of highly portable, low footprint healthcare and diagnostic devices in the near future.
Jinglin has been working on nanopore-based biosensing for 4 years in the Physics department of Cambridge University. Her PhD was focused on developing the basic functions of this biosensing platform for specific protein and gene mutant detection.
WaterScope, a social enterprise formed by Cambridge students and staff
The team at WaterScope have developed a fast and inexpensive water testing kit that quantifies bacterial contamination within 1-2 hours – ten times quicker than current technology. The method will also allow for rapid testing of different pathogens such as E. coli, Listeria, Legionella and pathogenic E. coli 0157 using an innovative and inexpensive 3D-printable microscope linked to a Raspberry Pi.
