Biology is inspiring technology, which in turn replaces biology. This global trend towards ageing populations, less active lifestyles and fast-food diets, is leading to more cases of, and earlier onset of, chronic conditions such as Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.  This lecture will reveal  Professor Toumazou’s attempts to provide bioinspired sensor processing technologies to help ease these and other conditions, including an on-the-spot DNA diagnostic test, a wireless disposable ‘digital’ plaster that measures heart and respiration continuously, a silicon based artificial pancreas, retina, cochlear and other body sensors  wirelessly connected through mobile technology.  Professor Chris Toumazou became the youngest professor at Imperial in 1995 at the age of 33.
