Bio-Inspired Semiconductors in Healthcare

4 February 2014

Dr Pantelis Georgiou gave an inspiring lecture concerning future dramatic improvements in healthcare.

He informed us that ‘chip’ technology can now monitor body organs, detect malfunctions, control medication, analyse DNA and produce an artificial pancreas. These processes are being  trialled on patients and are hoped to lead to substantial improvements in treatment of disease.
