He has published more than 300 scientific journal articles, 6 books, and more than 55 patents.
Speech Title: High Throughput Assay of Biomarkers Based on Magnetic Nanoparticles
Abstract: In last 15 years, we have developed a platform suited for both detection of high-throughput single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), copy numbers variation (CNVs), and aptamers-selection using magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) and copy number variation analysis by ligation-dependent PCR based on magnetic nanoparticles and fluorescence /chemiluminescence. Based on these advances in high throughput bioassay approaches of biomarkers, we have also developed a high-throughput DNA detection system recently. This system includes a magnetic station for sample separation, two high precision robot arms for liquid and 96-well plate transfer respectively, an accurate temperature control module for PCR and DNA hybridization and a high accurate and sensitive optical signal detection module for fluorescence and chemiluminescence detection. This system can realize sample preparation, target molecule enrichment or amplification, signal detection and data analysis fully automatically and can be used in clinical molecule diagnosis and high-throughput fluorescence immunological detection, and so on. We predict that the future is bright for this promising system.

Speech Title: Recent Trends of Nanomaterial-Based Tools and Strategies for Heavy-Metal Detection
Abstract: The heavy metals are not biodegradable and therefore they remain in ecological systems and in the food chain indefinitely, exposing top-level predators to very high levels of pollution. For this reason, safe limits or maximum contaminant levels have been defined for drinking water by different organizations from all over the world. Hence, the purpose of the present work is to provide a general overview on the latest trends in the development of heavy-metal-detection devices and systems. This talk deals with principles regarding designing and fabrication of biosensor, the planning of the biomolecule-transducer interface design, modification of sensing electrode by nanomaterial and biomolecule, selection of bioreceptor (antibody or enzyme or aptamers) suitable for the analyte, preparation and the characterization of the modified biosensors for detection of the heavy metals, future challenges etc. The modification of glassy carbon electrode by electrochemical method using Ag-Au alloy nanoparticles for detection of heavy metal in real water is an important feature of this talk. The perspective on aptamer-based nanobiosensors and diagnostics will also be discussed in view of technology and market with reference to present status and future prospects.
Keywords: nanobiosensor, analytes, transducer, aptamers, nanotechnology, biotechnology
