Spring 2013 IAB & Research Review
March 6 - 8

Luke P. Lee

Bionanoscience for Innovative Global Healthcare Research and Technology (BIGHEART)

It is a critical time to solve the problems of current qualitative biology and medicine, as well as low-cost healthcare system. I will discuss cellular nanosatellites that have triple functions: targeting, gene regulation, and sensing. Molecular imaging methods of wireless nanosatellites provide us a new opportunity to explore
inner life of living cells for understanding signaling pathways and cellular dynamics. I will also discuss my vision
for precision biology and personalized medicine via cellular BASICs* (Biologic Application Specific Integrated Circuits). By integrating these cellular BASICs platforms and nanoplasmonic optical antenna array, we are developing Optofluidic Application Specific Integrated System
(OASIS) for label-free bioassays and nucleic acid diagnostics. In summary, I will discus the
critical role of 21st precision nanobiology for nanomedicine, molecular diagnostics, and
integrative healthcare systems.
