Abstract We are combining advances in materials synthesis, microfabrication, biology and engineering to develop multiplexed engineered platforms for bio-diagnostics and non-invasive imaging using nanostructured materials. On one front, we have developed a completely electronic signal transduction scheme for specific biomolecular binding events on microcantilever platform. Such label-and optics-free detection approach for biochemical analytes promises a widely affordable versatile diagnostics system. We are also developing complex multifunctional architecture based on magnetic nanostructures for MR imaging and therapeutics. The core philosophy of our approach is the merger and synergy of physical sciences, engineering and biology, which promise to open new vistas for advanced imaging, diagnostics and therapeutic systems.
