Date2018-11-01/ Research Highlight
The International Institute of Electrical and Electronics (IEEE) Biomedical Circuits and Systems (BioCAS) held its annual conference in mid-October. Professor Yu Hao from the Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech), has made significant progress in bioluminescent image sensors based on spoof surface plasmonic filters in CMOS. His research papers have been rated as the best papers by IEEE BioCAS, one of best biomedical research conferences in IEEE.
Prof. YU Hao's group developed a nano-filter integrated with CMOS image sensor, which can effectively improve the signal-to-noise ratio of weak fluorescence signals as well as detection accuracy. His approach has shown a new path for biomedical fluorescence detection with application in the field of DNA sequencing.
In the end of October at Montreal, Canada, Prof. YU Hao was invited to give a keynote speech entitled "CMOS Integrated Lab-On-Chip System for Personalized DNA Sequencing" at the annual IEEE Life Sciences Conference (LSC). In his keynote speech, he introduced the team's achievements in the field of personalized medicine such as integrated circuit for DNA sequencing, with his latest research results using machine learning for on chip data analysis as well as multi-functional (chemical and optical) sensor chips.
Both IEEE BioCAS and LSC are flagship conferences in biomedical engineering sponsored by IEEE.
