Martyn Boutelle's Biography



Martyn Boutelle, Professor of Biomedical Sensors Engineering, Imperial College London

Martyn Boutelle is Professor of Biomedical Sensors Engineering in the Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London, and Consul for the Faculty of Engineering. His multidisciplinary research group is comprises, bioengineers, scientists, and clinicians. He develops novel analytical science methods using microfluidics, electrochemical sensors / biosensors, and wireless electronics to make portable, wearable monitoring devices. He then uses these in a program of clinical science research focusing on the acute traumatic brain injury, kidney transplantation as well as neonatal and athlete monitoring. The same measurement techniques are used in patients and in experimental models allowing genuine translational research.

Martyn is immediate past president of the International Society for Monitoring Molecules in Neuroscience, and a founder of the COSBID organization for studying acute human brain injury. He published > 190 papers, chapters and patents. He obtained a BSc and PhD in Chemistry from Imperial College and worked as an EP Abraham Research Fellow in the University of Oxford.

A goal for modern medicine is to protect vulnerable tissue by monitoring the patterns of changing physical,  electrical and chemical changes taking place in tissue - ‘multimodal monitoring’. Clinicians hope such information will allows treatments to be guided and ultimately controlled based on the measured signals. Microfluidic lab-on-chip devices coupled to tissue sampling using microdialysis provide an important new way for measuring real-time chemical changes as the low volume flow rates  of microdialysis probes are ideally matched to the length scales of microfluidic devices. Concentrations of key biomarker molecules can then be determined continuously using either optically or electrochemically (using amperometric, and potentiometic sensors).  Wireless devices allow analysis to take place close to the patient. Droplet-based microfluidics, by digitizing the dialysis stream into discrete low volume samples, both minimizes dispersion allowing very rapid concentration changes to be measured, and allows rapid transport of samples between patient and analysis chip. This talk will overview successful design, optimization, automatic-calibration and use of both continuous flow and droplet-based microfluidic analysis systems for real-time clinical monitoring, using clinical examples from our recent work.
