IEEE EMBS Memphis Chapter presents
“Nanostructured Biosensors Using Vertically Aligned Carbon Nanofibres”
by Dr. Syed K Islam, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science,The University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Engineering Auditorium, Engineering Administration Building,The University of Memphis between 3-4pm on 6th May.

Abstract: Nanostructured biosensors based on carbon nanomaterials exhibit excellent structural and catalytic properties, high loading of biocatalysts while providing enhanced stability and sensitivity compared to their traditional counterparts. Carbon electrode based enzymatic biosensors have been successfully realized demonstrating a wide range of functionality and cost effectiveness. Carbon nanomaterials, particularly vertically aligned carbon nanofibers (VACNF), possess excellent conductive and structural properties which make them excellent candidates for electrodes as well as immobilizing
substrates. Since the VACNFs are gown on silicon-compatible platform, it is possible to integrate the VACNF sensors with existing CMOS technologies for the development of a fully integrated bioChem lab-on-a-chip. This talk will present a glucose biosensor realized using VACNF. An electric cell substrate impedance sensing system (ECIS) based on VACNF will also be presented.

Bio: Dr. Syed Kamrul Islam received B.Sc. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology and M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Connecticut. He is currently a Professor and James W.McConnell Endowed Chair and is also serving as the Associate Head for Academic Affairsof the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Dr. Islam is leading the research efforts of the Analog VLSI and Devices Research Group at the University of Tennessee. He has served as the coordinator of the UT/ORNL Joint Program in Mixed Signal VLSI and Monolithic Sensor and as a founding member of the steering committee responsible for development of the Institute of Biomedical Engineering (iBME). As an affiliated faculty member of The University of Tennessee Center for Environmental Biotechnology, he is leading the efforts to develop biophotonic biosensors using genetically engineered whole-cell bioreporters on integrated circuits. His current research interests are: semiconductor devices, high temperature electronics, analog and mixed-signal circuit design, bio-microelectronics, and nanotechnology.

“Bioethics 101”

Thursday, March 31st, 2016


Christopher Church, Ph.D. has taught philosophy and religion courses at the Baptist College of Health Sciences since 1995, when he was one of the five inaugural General Studies faculty members. In 2000, he helped organize the Ethics Committee at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, where he has long served as Ethics Committee Chair and continues as a lead Clinical Ethics Consultant. Dr. Church has co-chaired the Baptist Memorial Health Care’s system-wide end-of-life task force, and has served on the ethics committees for Baptist Memorial Hospital-Desoto and now Baptist-Memphis. He serves on the Board of Directors of the Mid-South Coalition for Comfort Care & Bioethics.

Dr. Church’s bioethics publications include a chapter in Ethics and Research with Children: Learning from Cases, (ed. Eric Kodish. New York: Oxford University Press), as well as co-authored articles in Current Opinion in Pediatrics, the Journal of Clinical Oncology, the Journal of Clinical Ethics, and the American Journal of Bioethics. His religious studies publications include a commentary on the Epistle of James (Macon, GA: Smythe & Helwys, 2004). He has presented papers at national and international meetings in the fields of bioethics and religious studies.

A graduate of the University of Georgia (B.S. in Chemistry, ’82) and the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (M.Div., ’85 and Ph.D., ’90), Dr. Church has taken master’s level work in bioethics at Trinity International University (Chicago) and the Medical College of Wisconsin (Milwaukee). In summer 2000, he was one of fifteen scholars tapped for the National Endowment for the Humanities’ “Bioethics in Particular” seminar at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. In 2011, he completed the inaugural Clinical Ethics Immersion Experience at the Washington Hospital Center. An account of that experience appeared in the summer 2012 issue of the Journal of Clinical Ethics.
