Presentation Summary

Graphene is well known in the nanotechnology community to be an excellent chemical and biochemical sensor. Nanomedical Diagnostics is producing a commercial biosensor system based on graphene, and leveraging these great properties. However, use of a new disruptive material brings additional challenges in producing a commercial product. I will go over some of the amazing opportunities and special challenges in taking a graphene device from invention, through supply chain creation, and finally to sales.

Speaker Biography (Brett Goldsmith)

A founding member of Nanomedical Diagnostics and the company's CTO, Dr. Goldsmith's passion is taking nanoelectronic technology out of the theoretical realm to create practical products. One of the few people in the world with the combined expertise in biology and nanotechnology needed to develop graphene as a viable bio-electronic device, Dr. Goldsmith was the lead researcher on landmark field effect biosensing papers in Science and Nature Nanotechnology. His early work established coupling of biochemical systems to carbon nanotubes, for which he won the Nottingham Prize from the Physical Electronics Conference. Following graduate school at UC Irvine, Dr. Goldsmith joined the University of Pennsylvania as an Intelligence Community Fellow and led a project developing electronic devices coupled with GPCRs for multiplexed small molecule sensing. Leaving his post-doc position to start a nanotechnology group at the Navy's San Diego laboratory, Dr. Goldsmith identified technological needs in the field and advanced nanotechnology solutions to those needs through partnership with programs including Living Foundries and IVN Dx. Dr. Goldsmith brings proven experience in applying technological advancements in materials and electronics to biomedical needs.
