Daniel S. Schabacker received his PhD in Immunology / Protein Biochemistry at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. As Team Leader of the Biochip Group he is the lead scientist for the development of the Argonne National Laboratory biochip portfolio. In this role he is leading the development of nucleic acid and protein array applications. Working with both commercial licensees of the technology and governmental sponsors he coordinates product development of biochips and attendant hardware. Current research includes the development of, 1) a point-of-care human diagnostic respiratory biochip capable of rapidly identifying both bacterial and viral pathogens, 2) Veterinary diagnostic biochips capable of identifying causative organism(s) as well as antibiotic resistance for bovine respiratory syndrome and bovine mastitis, 3) Threat agent detection systems for rapid analysis (<15 minutes sample-to-answer) of multiple targets providing diagnostic confidence level outputs, and 4) Biochips and systems for biomarker discovery.
