Bridging Technology, Physics, and Medicine: A New Frontier

Setup

Nanobiophysics draws together the mainstays of physics, such as mechanical forces and electromagnetic fields, with the biochemical and cellular processes at the foundation of medicine. Anita Goel, a pioneer in this emerging platform, helped rocket MRSA, the antibiotic-resistant superbug, to the International Space Station so that scientists can study the influence of microgravity on the microbe’s mutation patterns. Goel also won the XPRIZE for Gene-RADAR®, a mobile device that can accurately diagnose any disease with a genetic fingerprint in minutes; she’ll be demonstrating that breakthrough during this interactive session. Her passions reflect a drive to incubate innovation, commercialize and scale new products, and maximize their global humanitarian impact.
