The four speakers in this U.S. symposium, “Thinking Small: New Tools for Bioanalysis from Single Molecules to Single Cells” will present their use of nanotechnology to advance their research in biological and biochemical analysis.

After an introduction by JAIMA President Shigehiko Hattori, Dr. MacDonald will begin with the “Historical Perspective of Nanotechnology” that will include a discussion of the controversies that have occurred over the years.

The University of Michigan’s Professor Robert Kennedy will follow with “The Nanoliter Lab: Using Droplet Microfluidics for High-Throughput Chemical Analysis, Sensing, and Method Interfacing” which will address the production and use of droplet microfluidics for high throughput chemical analysis.

Professor J. Michael Ramsey, University of North Carolina, continues with “Advancing Chemical and Biochemical Measurements using Micro- and Nanofabricated Devices“ which will cover the applications of micro- and nano- fabricated devices in chemical and biochemical measurements.

Professor Jonathan Sweedler, University of Illinois, will finish this symposium with “Using Mass Spectrometry to Characterize Brain Neurochemistry: Assaying Small Brain Regions Down to Individual Cells” This session will be a discussion of mass spectrometry used to characterize brain neurochemistry regions as small as individual cells.

Dr. Koichiro Matsuda will make closing remarks.
