Speakers: Dr Catherine Kendall

Since the time of the ancient Greeks, physicians have been aware that it is possible to smell disease. Since the 1980’s electronic noses have been developed to recognise odours using highly specific sensors and pattern recognition techniques. Electronic noses are currently commercially used in the food industry and in environmental monitoring and clinical applications are emerging.
This talk will discuss our research using electronic nose technology to identify the presence of microorganisms in samples collected from ventilated patients in intensive care. As a near-patient diagnostic tool there is potential for the technique to provide an earlier diagnosis than current methods and thereby improve patient outcome.
Coffee from 19:00.
