Jackie Linnes Talk RSVP
Tools to bring molecular diagnostics to the extreme points of care

Jackie Linnes, PhD, Purdue University
April 28th, 6 pm (Meet and greet with food at 5:30 pm)
Blum Hall B100

Over 90% of current point-of-care diagnostics still reside within hospital settings. How can we unlock these capabilities and make diagnostics accessible to the patients around the world who need them most? In this talk, I will discuss advances in technologies that will put POC tests into the hands of primary care physicians and concerned citizens themselves to detect and monitor a wide range of diseases. These distributed sample-to-answer tests will require highly accurate, portable, diagnostics with near foolproof operation and interpretation. I will present my research moving from microfluidic to paper-fluidic networks in order to develop portable, instrument-free, molecular diagnostics that will make highly sensitive disease detection as easy as taking a pregnancy test.
Dr. Jacqueline Callihan Linnes is an assistant professor of Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University as of January 2015.Jackie earned her Ph.D. in Bioengineering and certificate in Global Health from the University of Washington. She was a Fogarty engineering fellow in collaboration with Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Little Devices laboratory at MIT. She then moved to Boston University’s Biomedical Engineering department where she received a NIH NRSA postdoctoral fellowship to work with Dr. Catherine Klapperich to develop molecular diagnostics for point-of-care pathogen detection. Jackie’s current research bridges innovations in basic science and translational diagnostic techniques in order to develop non-invasive, rapid detection technologies that efficiently diagnose and monitor diseases at the point of care.
