The rising clinical and basic research interest in personalized and precision medicine promises to revolutionize traditional medical practices. This presents a tremendous opportunity for developing bio-electronic devices toward predictive analytics and treatment. An ecosystem consisting of emerging wearable biosensors and medical nanorobots can combine health monitoring with delivery of therapy and offer distinct advantages in realizing personalized and precision medicine. In this talk, I will firstly introduce fully-integrated biosensors for multiplexed in-situ perspiration analysis, which can selectively measure a wide spectrum of sweat analytes (e.g. metabolites, electrolytes and heavy metals) and provide insightful information about our health state. Then I will discuss the propulsion and applications of the synthetic nanorobots which have the potential to navigate through the human body for precision therapy internally, without the need for invasive surgical incisions. These bioelectronic devices open the door to a wide range of personalized diagnostic and therapeutic applications.
