Join us for a Discussion Group in Analytical Chemistry focusing on “Advances in Real-time Molecular Monitoring". The ability to continuously monitor the concentration of specific molecules in the body is a long-sought goal of biomedical research. For this purpose, interstitial fluid (ISF) was proposed as the ideal target biofluid because its composition can rapidly equilibrate with that of systemic blood, allowing the assessment of molecular concentrations that reflect full-body physiology. In the past, continuous monitoring in ISF was enabled by microneedle sensor arrays. Yet, benchmark microneedle sensors can only detect molecules that undergo redox reactions, which limits the ability to sense metabolites, biomarkers, and therapeutics that are not redox active.

Our speaker, Dr. Yao Wu will present recent research efforts towards the first use of microneedle-supported electrochemical, aptamer-based (E-AB) sensors. Dr. Wu joined Dr. Netz Arroyo’s group as a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Pharmacology and Molecular Sciences at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where she has been working on the development of DNA-based electrochemical sensors to monitoring wound healing and chemotherapeutic-driven tumor shrinkage, as well as microneedle aptamer-based sensors for continuous, real-time molecular monitoring.
