The Information Age transformed our lives
but it has had surprisingly little impact on the way chemical information is
acquired, analyzed and communicated.
Sensor systems are poised to change this situation by providing rapid
access to chemical information. This
access will be enabled by technological advances from various fields: biology
enables the synthesis, design and discovery of molecular recognition elements
as well as the generation of cell-based signal processors; physics and
chemistry are providing nano-components that facilitate the transmission and transduction
of signals rich with chemical information; microfabrication is yielding sensors
capable of receiving these signals through various modalities; and signal
processing analysis enhances the extraction of chemical information. Our broad goal is to create sensor systems
that can rapidly access complex chemical information and provide outputs as
either global signature patterns or signals specific to target
compounds-of-interest. Integral to this
goal are the use of (i) electrochemistry to interactively probe for chemical
information; and (ii) information processing to extract information from
complex signals. Wereview recent
research on thus use of electrochemical reverse engineering approaches to
extract chemically-based information.
Professor Gregory F. Payne received his B.S./M.S degrees from
Cornell University and his Ph.D. from The University of Michigan. He returned to Cornell for post-doctoral
study with Michael Shuler. In 1986 Prof.
Payne joined the faculty of the University of Maryland where he is a Professor
jointly-appointed in the Institute for Bioscience and Biotechnology Research
and the Fischell Department of Bioengineering.
His research is focused on biofabrication – the use of biological
materials and mechanisms to confer structure and function to materials. Dr. Payne has several active collaborations
with China where he is a Guest Professor at Wuhan University and South China
University of Technology, and also a Chair Professor at East China University
of Science and Technology.
