      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 ...

    3. Kim Chosen as New Carle Foundation - Beckman Institute Fellow

      Kim Chosen as New Carle Foundation - Beckman Institute Fellow
      Jongsick Kim has been chosen as the new Carle Foundation Hospital - Beckman Institute Fellow. Kim is the second Fellow chosen for the program, which was started in 2008 as a three-year appointment for a recent Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. interested in conducting oncology-related research at the Beckman Institute. The program is an opportunity for the Fellow to conduct independent, interdisciplinary, oncology-related translational research before launching her/his formal career. Michael Walsh was selected as the first-ever Carle - Beckman Fellow in 2008. Kim recently joined Beckman’s Biophotonics Imaging Laboratory, headed by Institute researcher Stephen Boppart, after serving ...

    4. Simple Equations Power Scott Carney's Research

      Simple Equations Power Scott Carney's Research
      Like any good theoretical physicist, Scott Carney likes explanations that are simple yet – in his discipline’s most praiseworthy adjective – elegant. For Carney, a Beckman Institute researcher with a focus on theoretical optics, the explanation that best serves his work is Maxwell’s equations, a set of four equations describing the fundamentals of electromagnetism. “Your life is dominated by electromagnetism and gravity, and gravity is simple,” Carney explained in his third floor Beckman office, using elements at hand to illustrate the point. “Maxwell’s equations dominate your experience in this world, from the light in this room to the extremely ...

      New Imaging Method uses Magnetic Nanoparticles that Move
      Applying one of the oldest natural forces known to science, magnetism, researchers at the University of Illinois have developed an imaging technology that noninvasively moves nanoparticles inside the body in order to target tumor cells and other tissue with a high degree of specificity. The contrast agent technology enables micron scale tissue detection and manipulation and represents, the researchers write, “a new methodology for contrast enhancement and therapeutic interventions in molecular imaging.” By taking advantage of the magnetic properties of iron-oxide nanoparticles, researchers were able to demonstrate for the first time in vivo magnetomotive optical coherence tomography (MMOCT) imaging of ...
