The work of Dr. Wei-Heng Shih, Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and Dr. Wan Shih, Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering, and their colleagues was featured in the March 6, 2008 issue of Chemical Technology.
The article highlights a recent journal publication co-authored by the Shihs (“Label-free flow-enhanced specific detection of Bacillus anthracis using a piezoelectric microcantilever sensor,”
John-Paul McGovern, Wan Y. Shih, Richard Rest, Mitali Purohit, Yognandan Pandya and Wei-Heng Shih, Analyst, 2008). It describes the use of a piezoelectric microcantilever sensors (PEMS) pioneered in the Shihs’ laboratory that can tell the difference between closely related bacteria.
