Ghodssi gives invited talk at Bio-Inspired Engineering International Symposium

On Jan. 17, ISR Director Reza Ghodssi (ECE/ISR) was an invited speaker at the Bio-Inspired Engineering International Symposium 2012 at Harvard University. Ghodssi spoke on “Biofabrication using the Tobacco mosaic virus for next-generation micro/nano devices and systems.” He demonstrated how Tobacco mosaic virus particles can be integrated with microfabrication processes, and how their nanoscale architecture can advance the performance of microbatteries and microsensors.

The symposium focused on multi-disciplinary research in the area of nanoscale systems bridging biology with chemistry, physics, materials science and engineering, and particularly on the utilization of biological principles for new engineering technologies and innovative solutions for scientific and industrial needs.
