    Positive Results: A New Era for Medical Diagnostics - News from UIUC

    A revolution in medical diagnostics and treatment has often been proclaimed because of recent advances like genetic screening and “lab-on-a-chip” technology. But this revolution, often referred to as personalized medicine, won’t take place without a new generation of diagnostic devices that fundamentally change the way diseases are detected and treated. And that technology is being developed, put into clinical trials, and in some cases commercialized by Beckman Institute researchers in work that could contribute to a truly different experience for patients in the near future. Some of this technology includes electronic biosensor monitors that conform to skin or the ...

    1. I think it's going to dramatically change things...What we hope is that diagnosis is going to get shifted closer and closer to the point of care...We’re developing techniques to get at molecular changes..So much of medicine and pathology are based on structural changes. If we think of a pathologist looking at a slide, he or she looks at the cells and tissue structures. A radiologist will look at how organs and these anatomical structures are arranged...But with a lot of these techniques, we can get the molecular changes where disease starts. So a pathologist that has molecular information, not just structural, will perhaps catch disease earlier. The same is true for Rohit’s work and Gabi’s work.
