mechanical systems (MEMS) for microchemical and biomedical
applications (BioMEMS) have the fastest growth rate within the MEMS market,
particularly for drug discovery and delivery, microfluidics devices, bios
ensors, biochips,

-
chip systems, nanoparticles, DNA test and diagnostics, biotelemetry, and
genomics. BioMEMS manufacturing technologies are based on the microelectronics
nanotechnologies of very large scale integration (VLSI) digital and analog ci
rcuits and
microprocessors. The VLSI manufacturing has been highly optimized technically and
financially during the past decade and it represents a significant part of the world market.
The implementation of microelectronics and nanofabrication technologie
s in the
BioMEMS fabrication offers new market opportunities to biomedical
-
device
manufacturers and, respectively, new job opportunities to young biomedical engineers
with interdisciplinary training. The biomedical microsystems job market imposes to
univer
sities to respond by increasing the quality of bioengineering and bioinformatics
interdisciplinary training programs.

New Jersey Institute of Technology has developed extensive capabilities in
microelectronics and micromachining technologies

for biomedica
l applications
. The
Microelectronics Fabrication Center at NJIT has a fully equipped 1200 sq.ft. Class
-
10
cleanroom facility for design, fabrication, and test of
BioMEMS based on silicon, glass,
polymer
-
based micromachining technologies, IC microelectronic
s, nanotechnologies,
integrated biosensors and bioactuators, microfluidics structures, and
bio
chemical chips

and microchemical rectors
.

The main goal of the Program is to enhance and expand nationwide the existing at NJIT
interdisciplinary training of un
dergraduate and graduate students in the field of
BioMEMS and nanofabrication technologies and to provide high quality interaction
among students, faculty, and world
-
known researchers in the field of biomedical and
microchemical systems. The Class
-
10 clean
room facility makes NJIT unique among
other US universities. The Program will allow existing didactic and facility capabilities
at NJIT to take new dimensions in the interdisciplinary training programs. Formal
interdisciplinary courses on BioMEMS design w
ill be combined with state
-
of
-
the
-
art
research seminars and Class
-
10 cleanroom training on bulk and surface microfabrication
and nanotechnolgies. Students will share interdisciplinary bioengineering and
bioinformatics research experiences with experts in v
arious BioMEMS application fields
such as:



Nanofabricated particles for drug delivery



Chemical and biological synthesis within microfluidics devices



Implantable microchips for drug delivery



DNA microsensors for biological identification



Microelectronics a
rrays for DNA diagnostics



Biometrics identification microsystems



Biological and chemical integrated sensors for personal protection and antiterrorism
