Breath Analysis for Biomedicine and National Security Sensor Design Issues and Strategies for Biomarker Discovery
We would like to thank all of our attendees for a fantastic meeting! Hope to see you at upcoming breath meetings...
Final 2012 Attendees (>125 people)
Our meeting attendees came from:
- 18 countries (including 17 states in the USA alone)
- 64 cities from around the globe
- 5 continents!
- 35+ companies, ranging from start-ups to mid- and large corporations
- 10+ government agencies and laboratories
- 40+ academic universities and medical centers
As human breath analysis further develops as a multi-disciplinary field, it is clear that sensor development, instrumentation systems and algorithms play critical roles within this research area.
Although much emphasis in the last decade has focused on breath biomarker compound identification and physiological relevance, we increasingly turn our attention towards portable, fieldable sensor platforms for non-invasive breath monitoring.
The mission of this workshop was to assemble a group of leading experts in this field to discuss their own research, debate trends and future directions of the field, and contemplate areas of research that deserve special attention in the field moving forward.
