PHYSICS FOR DISEASE DETECTION (Session Q10 and T10)

Sessions Q10 and T10 feature several talks on new "biochips" -- a type of technology that has emerged in the last decade for the rapid and sensitive detection of diseases. These devices offer the possibility of smaller and less expensive disposable kits that can detect disease even in people with no symptoms by looking for disease markers in, for example, a drop of blood, saliva, or urine.

Detecting diseases is a powerful tool in modern medicine because many diseases, including cancer (the #2 killer in the United States), are often treated more successfully when detected in their earliest stages. Worldwide, there is a profound need to find better ways of detecting diseases in order to help curtail the spread of infections like tuberculosis, AIDS, and diarrheal diseases. This is not always a simple task because the majority of the people suffering from these diseases reside in developing countries, where resources are scarce and per capita health care spending may be no more than a few dollars a year. Public health strategies in the developing world often also need to take i
