Faraday Discussion 149: Analysis for Healthcare Diagnostics and Theranostics
6 - 8 September 2010
University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom
This is a highly topical and exciting area which opens up the real prospect of theranostics (the use of diagnostics in informing patient specific therapy), but for which development and optimisation of detection requires an understanding and control of the fundamental physical processes occurring both in sensing and in signal transduction and the comparatives merits of alternative detection strategies. For high throughput detection, bioinformatics (the processing and interpretation of vast amounts of data) also presents a real challenge.
Faraday Discussion 149 was organised by the Faraday Division in association with the Analytical Division.
Faraday Discussion 149 was organised by the Faraday Division. It provided an opportunity to bring together scientists from many disciplines, including biologists, physicists and chemists, involving academics and industrialists from the healthcare and biosensing communities.
