BDI HOSTS CROSS ATLANTIC VIDEO CONFERENCES
During March & April, the BDI hosted a number of International talks for the M.Sc. Advances in Diagnostics seminar series. This is in preparation for the International M.Sc. in Biomedical Diagnostics which begins in September 2014. The programme is based upon a collaboration with BDI, DCU, Arizona State University and Ventana Medical Systems, Inc. On March 13th, Dr. Jerry Kosmeder, Director of chemistry at Ventana, presented a very insightful seminar on current R & D projects underway in Ventana particularly the application of Ventana technology to companion diagnostics and personalised healthcare. Staying within the state of Arizona, on Thursday April 10th Prof. Jeff La Belle delivered a very engaging presentation outlining the novel multimarker diabetes sensors being developed by his research team at ASU.
