His Stanford Genome Technology Center’s main focus is to develop new and affordable technologies that can make a difference in the doctor’s office. That’s what the nano-needle – a potentially very cheap diagnostic device – is all about. From SGTC’s web page
The Biotechnology (err ME/CFS) Talk
Davis, of course, has done innumerable talks but probably none more important to him than the ones he’s doing now on ME/CFS. Because several of Davis’s biotechnologies (nanoneedle, magnetic levitation device, HLA analytics) are being used in chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), Davis used the opportunity to spread the word on ME/CFS. He then went into the biological and bioengineering departments over two days doing the same thing.
Janet Dafoe reported that Ron came back from his two-day visit surprised and gratified at the response.
Talks at Universities usually end with a couple of people milling around for 5 or 10 minutes afterwards but Janet reported that hundreds of people remained for up to an hour after Ron’s talk. They were interested in ME/CFS and shocked they’d never heard of a disease that was a) so prevalent and b) could be so disabling.
