Epidermal and Transdermal Biosensors: Understanding the Chemical Self with Printed Platforms (IDTechEx Wearable USA 2015)

Dr Joshua Windmiller, CTO & Founder
Biolinq Inc
United States

Presentation Summary

This talk highlights the development of a novel class of minimally- and non-invasive electrochemical biosensors that facilitate the quantification of relevant metabolomic, electrolytic, hormonal, and neurochemical information in a continuous, real-time fashion. Fabricated through manufacturing processes that are scalable, cost-effective, and have a minimum environmental footprint, these novel biosensing modalities seek to bridge the gap between analytical-grade instrumentation typically found in the hospital laboratory and user requirements for unobtrusive, low-profile, skin-applied devices able to deliver timely, actionable information using existing wirelessly-enabled wearable and mobile platforms.

Speaker Biography (Joshua Windmiller)

Dr. Joshua Windmiller is an internationally-recognized expert in wearable electrochemical biosensor technology. His Ph.D. research, funded by a Powell Foundation fellowship, focused on the development of printed biosensors, bioelectronics, and biofuel cells. He has published over 50 manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings and has eleven US patents issued or pending. Dr. Windmiller, a Gordon Fellow, NIH SHIFT awardee, and two-time NIH Lab-to-Marketplace awardee is the recipient of the Printed Electronics USA 2010 Academic R&D award for his developments in textile-based printed bioelectronics. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Laboratory for NanoBioElectronics at UCSD in 2013, where he was supported by the von Liebig Center for Entrepreneurism and led a commercialization grant sponsored by the DOE. For his successful product development activities leading to the commercialization of novel printed bioelectronic paradigms, he received the Printed Electronics USA 2014 Product Development award. He currently serves as the CTO of Biolinq, a startup that he co-founded devoted to the development of the novel biosensing modalities he has invented for application in the personal wellness and healthcare domains.
