This talk will discuss the current goals and efforts of point of care and personal health monitoring systems: what they can do now and what is in the works. These interfaces can be used in a precision medicine context—making diagnoses and getting the right drugs to the right patients at the right time. Many of the same sensors and engineering are being prototyped now for neural interfaces and recording devices with applications in visual, auditory, and motor cortex, allowing basic research along with preliminary applications in actuation and sensing. While miniaturization and electronics development using established manufacturing protocols can provide the current engineering foundations, novel biochemical ligands and molecular detectors can provide the needed flexibility for next-generation devices.
