Ryan Bailey's Biography

Ryan Bailey, Associate Professor, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Ryan C. Bailey is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with affiliate appointments in the University’s Department of Bioengineering, Institute for Genomic Biology, and Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory. Prior to joining the faculty at Illinois, he received degrees in chemistry from Eastern Illinois University (B.S.) and Northwestern University (Ph.D.), and completed postdoctoral training jointly at the California Institute of Technology and the Institute for Systems Biology. Prof. Bailey’s research group is generally interested in developing highly multiplexed and parallelizable detection strategies for point-of-care diagnostics, with applications in advanced genomic, transciptomic, proteomic, and epigenomic analyses. Prof. Bailey was named by Technology Review Magazine at a Top Innovator under 35 and has been recognized with a Sloan Foundation Fellowship, the Arthur F. Findeis Award for Achievements by a Young Analytical Scientist, and a NIH Director’s New Innovator Award, among others.

The concept of personalized medicine is predicated on an ability to comprehend a patient’s disease state in a highly informed manner that ideally illuminates an effective, molecularly-targeted treatment strategy. A growing body of evidence suggests that the simultaneous measurement of many unique biomolecular signatures from a single clinically relevant sample would be incredibly enabling in achieving such an informative diagnosis. Unfortunately, this is an analytical feat that currently not possible using established methods, thereby limiting the implementation of informative molecular diagnostic and theragnostic strategies in the clinical treatment of disease. In response to this and other bioanalytical challenges that simultaneously require high sensitivity, high level multiplexing capability, and scalable and cost effective sensor fabrication, our group has developed a new biomolecular analysis platform based upon silicon photonic microring resonators. This detection strategy leverages well validated semiconductor fabrication, laser sources from optic telecommunications, and conventional microarraying tools to create highly multiplexed and robust biosensor arrays that are extraordinarily sensitive to biomolecular binding events at the sensor surface. In this talk I will describe our efforts to develop this emerging platform in the context of creating multiplexed detection solutions for point-of-care diagnostics.
