Nanoscale biosensing in reproductive medicine was the theme of a CNBP symposium at the Annual Scientific Meeting of the Endocrine Society of Australia and the Society for Reproductive Biology for 2015.
CNBP speakers included Prof. Mark Hutchinson, Prof. Ewa Goldys and A/Prof Brant Gibson who presented the concepts/applications of their CNBP work, followed by presentations specifically related to reproduction by Dr Erik Schartner, Mr Malcolm Purdy and Dr Sabrina Heng.
Title talks were as follows:
Mark Hutchinson: New windows into the body.
Ewa Goldys: Through the looking glass: what can we see in the early embryo when we look carefully enough.
Brant Gibson: Nanodiamond for BioPhotonic and Hybrid-Photonic applications.
Sabrina Heng: Microstructured Optical Fibers and Photoswitches: Light-Driven Sensors for
Metal Ions in Biology.
Erik Schartner: Development of optical fibre probes for biosensing applications.
Malcolm S Purdey: A Non-invasive Sensor for Hydrogen Peroxide and pH.
