Keynote - Ultrafast Photonic PCR-Based Smart SANDs & Organoids on Chip for Personalized Precision Medicine
In this keynote session, Professor Luke Lee presents a smart SANDs (Speedy Analytical Nano-optofluidic Diagnostic system) that can help to predict and stop the spread of infectious disease. An example of a smart SANDs will be discussed, along with integrated molecular diagnostic systems (iMDx) that comprise three key elements: (1) a self-contained sample preparation and liquid biopsy on chip, which allows a rapid sample-to-answer readout platform; (2) ultrafast photonic PCR; and (3) smartphone optical system (SOS). This rapid precise molecular-level detection network by smart SANDs for human, agricultural, foods, and environmental health will radically improve global healthcare and empower us to create a new proactive, predictive, preventive medicine, and enhancing global biosecurity. Professor Lee also presents the development of organoids Microphysiological Analysis Platforms (MAP) that will predict the most effective treatment of diseases for each patient. Human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs)-based organoids MAP provides an ideal model to address fundamental questions of molecular organogenesis and pathogenesis. In addition, patient-derived organoids can recapitulate patient responses and help personalized therapy. Current development of mini-brains MAP, pancreatic islets MAP, and kidney organoids MAP will be discussed. Together, these smart SANDs and organoids MAPs by the convergence of biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering will impact on quantitative life sciences and precision medicine.

10:55AM-11:25AM
Wearable and Remote Patient Monitoring: Pitfalls of Medically Accurate Measurements
Walt Maclay / President / Voler Systems
Walt Maclay covers common bio-sensors used in wearables for remote patient monitoring and how to get medically accurate measurements. Measuring EKG -- Measurement points have to be rather far apart (at least 1½ inches on the chest). That’s a significant issue if the device is too small. It’s particularly difficult to measure EKG on the wrist. Heart rate -- Heart rate is simple to implement in theory, but difficult to measure on the wrist. Measuring the electrical EKG signal requires good contact with the skin, which can be difficult. A more reliable technique is pulse plethysmography or PPG, but there are two types, and the one that is most reliable only works on the fingers or the ears.

11:35AM-12:05PM
Still on Track to Revolutionize Wearable Healthcare?
Andrew Baker / Managing Director of the Industrial & Healthcare Business Unit / Maxim Integrated
With a lot of hype around wearables and their potential to disrupt healthcare, the industry is still far from realizing its full potential. Current wearables are still mired with technical & cost challenges, aren't yet relied upon for monitoring health, and still cannot distinguish between walking & driving. Similarly, attaining accurate heart rate monitoring on the wrist has been a challenge. Attendees will gain insight into creating wearables for prevention, early detection & chronic disease monitoring, collecting biometric data, and personalized, continuous monitoring.
