In face of more and more challenges from life science and basic medical research, includes tumor, diabetes, drug screening and transformational research in clinical areas, also the detection and analysis of latest various pathogens like influenza. Beads-based suspension array system has become the mainstream technology in this area and increasingly being used because of its multiplexing capability, high throughput and high-sensitivity. In this seminar, we will focus in the following topics:

  1. Pathogenic mechanism of malignant tumor
  2. Cell signaling
  3. Pathogenic mechanism of epidemic pathogen
  4. Basic research of diabetes
  5. Transformation research for clinical marker
  6. High throughput screening and detection of epidemic pathogen such as influenza
  7. New drug screening

*The Bio-Plex system is available at the GRC as CORE service.
