A warm welcome to the next Crossing Borders webinar with Hyun (Michel) Koo.

Speaker: Hyun (Michel) Koo, University of Pennsylvania

This presentation focuses on catalytic nanoparticle technology to develop small-scale microrobots for automated biofilm disruption and removal. We demonstrate how the catalytic and magnetic properties of iron oxide nanoparticles can be explored using robotics principles to develop different platforms to degrade biofilms, kill the embedded bacteria, and mechanically remove them from difficult-to-reach surfaces. Current challenges and future directions of this nano-robotics technology will be discussed.
