Prof Derek O’Keeffe, Consultant Physician UHG, who is organising the lecture said, “The research by Prof Rogers will change the world and be routine in our lives by 2030. The wearable technologies of today will become bio-integrated labs with skin-like properties to capture and analyse the chemistry of sweat with wireless connectivity to allow non-intrusive screening.”
