MizzouForward Keynote – Advancing Nanopore Technology as a Versatile Tool for Environmental and Health Applications



November 30th | 11:00am – 12:00pm

103 Schlundt Hall

Join us for Advancing Nanopore Technology as a Versatile Tool for Environmental and Health Applications" a keynote presentation by College of Arts & Science -Chemistry, MizzouForward faculty candidate, Dr. Richard Guan. Dr. Guan will present on his research for approximately 40-minutes with a 20-minute question and answer session to follow.


Dr. Richard (Xiyun) Guan is a Professor and Director of Graduate Studies of Chemistry at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, IL.  He is also a Visiting Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, IN.  Dr. Guan completed his B.S. degree in Applied Chemistry at China University of Geosciences, WuHan, P.R. China and his M.S. degree in Analytical Chemistry at Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences, Beijing, P.S. China.  Dr. Guan earned his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY.


Nanopore stochastic sensing has attracted substantial interest as a label-free technique to measure single molecules by taking advantage of the ionic current modulations produced by the movement of target analytes in a single nano-scale sized pore. A major bottleneck of utilizing nanopore sensors for practical applications is the rapid transport of target analytes through the pore since current recording techniques do not always accurately detect these rapid events. In this presentation, Dr. Guan will highlight some of his group’s research efforts to advance nanopore technology as a versatile tool for exploring various new applications, especially, in medical diagnosis, homeland security, pharmaceutical screening, and environmental monitoring.
