Diabetes: We Care
A few years ago, Dr. Chen had the opportunity to share in the joys and sorrows of children afflicted with diabetes during an evening outing at a local summer camp. At the meeting, there were many heartfelt interactions between these children, their families, and Dr. Chen. What touched Dr. Chen the most, was when a small child, about 2-3 years old, who was diagnosed as type 1 diabetic, put her small hand in Dr. Chen’s hand and showed to Dr. Chen, the child’s painful daily experience to test her blood glucose. It was while holding the small hand of this child in Dr. Chen’s palm, that Dr. Chen felt that this was a turning point in her life. It was at that silent moment, that Dr. Chen realized her need to make a difference in the lives of these children, and for other patients with unmet needs. The image of this little girl was forever etched into Dr. Chen’s mind. It has become an everlasting source of strength to encourage ABS to move forward in haste to develop its revolutionary technologies and innovative medical devices for diabetes around the world.
The ABS team has developed an innovative memristive/memcapacitive device with vertex double-helical polarized biomimetic nanotubule membrane on a gold chip that induced the Fermi arc surface states to occurred at room temperature and the phenomena was observed at the first time. The new technology enabled us to detect Matrix Matelloproteinase-2 in ag/mL level sensitivity without using any antibody, or reagent in certified NIST’s SRM965A human reference blood serum, Sensors & Transducers, 214(7), 69-84, 2017.
ABS has a book chapter: Nanostructure Biomimetic Sensing and Energy Storage: Organic Memristor/Memcapacitors in Dekker Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, Third Edition; Lyshevski, S. Ed.; Taylor and Francis: New York, 2017. Published online. January 18, 2017. DOI: 10.1081/E-ENN3-120054061.
