Biosensor Revolution: Protecting our Health. Keeping our Land, Water, and Air Safe.

  • 2044 Rayburn House Office Building (map)

Detecting and monitoring toxins in the body and in the environment has never been more important. Recent crises in the news, such as the Flint Water Crisis, prove this time and time again. Biosensors may hold the key to detecting toxic chemicals in the air and in the water. But it doesn’t stop there--biosensors are also capable of detecting personal exposure to toxins, as well as biomarkers to cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.

Please join the Research & Development Caucus for an important discussion about biosensors developed by biomedical engineers supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). At this event, meet bioengineers who are working on developing biosensors that can help improve your heath and the health of your environment.
