It is critical time to solve the problems of current qualitative biomedical science and healthcare system. In the first part of talk, I will present biophotonic nanosatellites that have multiple functions such as targeting, imaging, gene delivery, and photonic gene circuits in living cells. Biophotonic nanosatellites allow us real-time cellular galaxy exploration, wireless cellular communications, and dynamic controls of gene circuits in living cells. In the second part of talk, I will discuss (1) cellular BASICs (Biologic Application Specific Integrated Circuits) for quantitative cell biology including single stem cell analysis and dynamic cell culture array, which allows simultaneous detection of gene and protein expression, (2) global healthcare diagnostics on chip called Self-powered Integrated Microfluidic Blood Analysis System (SIMBAS) for infectious diseases, (3) Optofluidic Application Specific Integrated System (OASIS) for label-free bioassays, and (4) and Integrated Molecular Diagnostic Systems (iMDs) for preventive personalized medicine. In summary, I will share my vision for the convergence of science, engineering, and medicine to transform life sciences as well finding the solutions for translational medicine and low-cost healthcare systems.
