Bioanalytical Sensors (GRS)
Gordon Research Seminar

From Atoms to Organisms: Elucidating Physicochemical Properties of Multiscale Systems


June 25-26, 2016


Salve Regina University
Newport, RI


Josephine C. Cunningham & Quinn A. Best

Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on Bioanalytical Sensors is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

The focus of this meeting is on new bioanalytical sensors and solutions that provide highly specific and quantitative molecular data of biological systems. Specific topics will include micro- and nanofluidics, nanomaterials, in vitro and in vivo imaging, instrumental techniques, and real world detection/diagnosis.

Related Meeting

This GRS was held in conjunction with the "Bioanalytical Sensors" Gordon Research Conference (GRC). Refer to the associated GRC program page for more information.
