Brandon H. McNaughton >> Home
I am currently an Assistant Research Scientist in the Biomedical Engineering Department at the University of Michigan. I currently work with Professor Alan J. Hunt, Professor Raoul Kopelman and Professor Roy Clarke. My main research interests are fabrication and application of magnetic microspheres and nanoparticles.


October 23, 2008 - Finalist in the National Inventors Hall of Fame Collegiate Inventors Competition for "Rapid Detection and Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing of Bacteria."

December 7, 2007 - physicsworld.com wrote an article, "Tiny Sphere Detects Bacteria", on research conducted in Professor Raoul Kopelman's Lab.

November 26, 2007 - The University of Michigan did a press release on the single bacterial cell detection paper.

November 26, 2007 - A paper that I authored - Single bacterial cell detection with nonlinear rotational frequency shifts of driven magnetic microspheres - has been published in the Applied Physics Letters. (Copyright 2007 American Institute of Physics. This article may be downloaded for personal use only. Any other use requires prior permission of the author and the American Institute of Physics Original Location)

November 2007 - A paper that I coauthored called, "Shadows on the Walls: Geometrical interpretation of fractional integration" has been published on JOMA.

September, 2007 - Construction of a prototype for single cell detection and growth dynamics, based on my research, has been funded by a Michigan Universities Commercialization Initiative grant.

March 8, 2007 - My patent application, "Nonlinear rotation rate shifts of driven particles and uses thereof," was sent to the US patent and trademark office.

March 5, 2007 - I presented a talk at the American Physical Society Meeting in Denver called, "Dynamic Detection of a Single Bacterium: Nonliear Rotation of Driven Magnetic Microspheres".

January, 2007 - I have now officially completed the PhD program in applied physics and began my postdoctoral research with Professor Roy Clarke.

January, 2007 - My sensors and actuators paper is now available here.

June, 2006 - The Modulated physical and chemical sensors patent application is now available online.

June, 2006 - My latest paper is available online in the Journal of Physical Chemistry B.

December, 2005 - I received a travel award from the American Physical Society for the March 2006 meeting. I will be presenting a talk and a poster at the conference.
