2020 SENSE.nano Symposium image

The 2020 SENSE.nano symposium was an exploration of sensing the body at all scales. From the level of cells, organs, and body systems to individuals and populations, this symposium, broken into three half-day webinars, highlighted the needs for new sensing technologies, showcased research and innovations, and presented the impact of these technologies.

Over a series of invited technical talks, panel discussions, presentations by MIT-launched startups, and a view into MIT research today with current graduate students, this event provided needs context and solution perspectives in the domains of sensing for the study of biology and for the care of humans in their environment.
