Ashutosh Chilkoti is the Alan L. Kaganov Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Duke University.

My research in biomolecular engineering and biointerface science focuses on the development of new molecular tools and technologies that borrow from molecular biology, protein engineering, polymer chemistry and surface science that we then exploit for the development of applications that span the range from bioseparations, plasmonic biosensors, low-cost clinical diagnostics, and drug delivery.

Designing interfaces for optical biosensors

I will describe two interfaces for optical biosensors: (1) a label-free biosensor that exploits the local surface plasmon resonance of noble metal nanostructures; and (2) a polymer brush interface on glass that abolishes non-specific adsorption le
