19 Pesticide Absorption into the Body Fuzzy Modeling of Skin Permeability Coefficients Transdermal Delivery of Antisense Oligonucleotides Biosignals & Systems Medical Imaging Biomedical imaging Noninvasive blood flow velocity measurement Single molecule imaging and tracking DNA sequencing instrumentation

20 The Future at UNL? Areas of Collaboration? Cross-field: Nanotechnology and molecular biology, Computer modelling; complex systems Microbiology of pathogens, drug and vaccine development (Strong Chemistry and Animal Sciences). Multidisciplinary Cross-department, Cross-campus Collaborations. More Growth in Funding (despite recent NIH budget dips). Unique Niches.
