Drs. Mark Chance and David Lodowski have established the Case Center for Biomarker Structure and Integration for Sensors (BioSIS), a program to advance biosensor technologies using biophysical techniques to understand and improve sensing of markers of stress and fatigue.
With $2 million through the Nano-Bio Materials Consortium, a public-private partnership created by the federal government to fund research and development for innovative medical technology, BioSIS is collaborating with the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) in Dayton and the U.S. Air Force’s 711th Human Performance Wing to develop technologies that detect biological indications of stress and fatigue in real time to monitor and improve pilot performance.
“Our collaboration is focused on understanding what is happening at the core of the sensor, where the sensing elements recognize and capture stress-related molecules,” said Mark Chance, vice dean for research at the School of Medicine, who is leading the BioSIS project. “The discovery and optimization engine that is the BioSIS program will drive the invention of new sensing approaches with wide-ranging implications for biology and medicine.”
