AIMES - Crossing Borders with Hyun (Michel) Koo
Time: Wed 2022-12-14 15.00 - 16.00
Video link: Zoom
Speaker: Hyun (Michel) Koo, University of Pennsylvania
Title: “Targeting biofilms at multi-length scales: From nanoparticles to microrobots”
We are happy to welcome Michel Koo to give a talk with the following abstract:
This presentation focuses on catalytic nanoparticle technology to develop small-scale microrobots for automated biofilm disruption and removal. We demonstrate how the catalytic and magnetic properties of iron oxide nanoparticles can be explored using robotics principles to develop different platforms to degrade biofilms, kill the embedded bacteria, and mechanically remove them from difficult to reach surfaces. Current challenges and future directions of this nano-robotics technology will be discussed.
We will send you the meeting ID for Zoom via email.
