Enhancing Research Capabilities with Sensor Technology & Application
Serving as a resource for basic agricultural, biological, and biomedical researchers, the Physiological Sensing Facility (PSF) provides scientists with a mechanism not only to use new biosensing capabilities for basic research, but also to inaugurate new research initiatives. The PSF actively organizes new research teams for the development of novel sensor technologies (electroanalytical, biosensors, optrodic, MEMS, microfluidics, nanosensors, to name a few) to enhance campus capabilities. Through the PSF, engineers can utilize facility capabilities to test and adapt new technologies and biological findings in the development of new sensor technologies. The collaborative, multidisciplinary environment of the PSF provides learning opportunities for graduate students, as interdisciplinary individuals, to become future leaders in biological sensing.
