Martyn Boutelle's Biography



Martyn Boutelle, Professor of Biomedical Sensors Engineering, Vice Chair Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London

After an initial undergraduate training in Chemistry and a PhD in Electrochemistry at Imperial College London. I worked as a research fellow in the University Laboratory of Physiology, University of Oxford using implantable electrochemical sensors and microdialysis probes to study brain neurochemistry. This work was extended to clinical monitoring of the injured brain when I moved to the Department of Chemistry, King’s College London. I moved to the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College in 2004. My biomedical monitoring research group is multidisciplinary, embracing both the development of fundamental physical/ analytical science methods, particularly combining microfluidic devices with electrochemical sensors, and the use of these new techniques in a program of neuroscience and clinical science research. My approach is to combine real-time measurement of neurochemical, electrical and physical measurements such as blood flow and local brain pressure to give a clear picture of the dynamics of tissue response to stimulation or trauma. The same measurement techniques are used in patients and in experimental models allowing genuine translational research.

Microfluidic Devices – Key Technologies to Enable Real-Time Patient Monitoring and Treatment

Clinical practice is beginning to wake upto the potential of real-time molecular information from venerable tissue as a means to understand the progression in the tissue of injury or disease. Such patterns of molecular changes, particularly when combined with paternal of physical of electrical signatures, offer the exciting possibility of allowing clinicians to guide therapy on an individualized basis in real time. In this presentation I will describe the development of 3D printed microfluidic devices connected to wireless electronics for transplant organ and patient monitoring. Tissue sampling is via integrated microdialysis probes. Concentrations of important biomarkers are measured using microscale amperometric biosensors (energy metabolites, and excitatory neurotransmitters) and ion-selective electrodes (ISE) for tissue ionic balance. Detailed patterns of ionic responses can be revealed using a high density ISE array within the flow stream. High time resolutions can be achieved using a novel droplet based microfluidic system. The presentation with describe the design and optimization challenges and include clinical examples from our recent work.
