Assistant Professor Jinglei Ping, UMass Amherst: "¬2D-Material Biosensors"

The emerging field of biosensors based on two-dimensional (2D) materials offers a pathway to new opportunities in microbioanalytics, highlighting next-generation tools for point-of-care diagnostic, health care, and environmental monitoring. My talk will focus on the unique transduction properties of 2D materials and the downstream biomolecular-sensor applications with unprecedented high sensitivity and efficiency in power, size and cost. I will discuss the self-transducibility of 2D materials at the interface to biofluids; the methodologies I developed to fabricate, functionalize and implement small-scale (~ ????m) 2D-based biosensing devices; and label-free detection of various biomarkers (nucleic acid oligomers, proteinaceous antigens, opioid-neuropeptides, pH) with high sensitivity, e.g. attomolar for DNA, by using the devices. I will conclude by introducing a handheld multiplexed water-quality monitoring robot enabled by graphene aptasensors.

Insight (Mindfulness) Meditation Group

5:00 pm Chapin Hall, Chapin Chapel

Whether you have meditated for a long time or have never meditated, come join us for this time of practice together. Come to relax, quiet your mind, learn how to experience less suffering and stress, explore Buddhist philosophy and psychology, just talk about what it means to live from compassion and awareness - or because you are curious. This event will be led by Mark Hart, Buddhist Advisor.
