Emerging trends in Lab of the future
Filed under: Observ. Trends, Alternate Career Paths
Posted by: site admin @ 7:15 am

Recently I attended a conference reporting some remarkable
trends with

A. miniaturized personal monitoring laboratory devices

B. formalized operating system for intuitive integration of
robots

C. 3-d printing of devices

D.  Q-state of protein folding offering the quintile structure
of proteins for activity.
==========
All of these showed creative solutions providing innovation
to solve problems.

A.  Vadik Marmeladov displayed personal environment

monitor
that connects to your phone to measure, collect and
analyze
the hidden qualities of your surroundings. 
Lapka devices and app compares readings to average guidelines
and can create profiles and a diary for personalized medicine.

B.  Greg Linshiz reported microfluidics platforms for
biotechnology and biorefinery platforms.

C.  Eric Jones of National Center for Advancing Translational
Sciences reported emerging 3d printed devices from various
materials
http:// 3dprint.nih.gov
allows adaptation to sample and conditions.

D.  William Balch from Scripps Institute reported a Quintile
form of structural complexity in protein folding that influences
protein function explored via isobaric mass spec.
