5th International Symposium on Sensor Science
S3: Bio-inspired and Bio-based Strategies for Sensing and Fluidics
This session is focused on bio-inspired and biomimetic approaches to sensing and fluidics. Currently, many of the strategies for creating chemical sensors and biosensors, and microfluidics are largely engineering inspired ideas and concepts from the 1960s and 1970s. However, recent breakthroughs in materials science and fabrication technologies will drive fluidics and sensing towards approaches that are much more bio-inspired in nature. In this session, we will discuss the current state of the art in sensing and fluidics, and speculate on the potential disruptive impact bio-inspired concepts might have on this area.
