Nathaniel Cady, holds a PhD in microbiology from Cornell University and specializes in research at the interface of nanotechnology and biology. Dr. Cady’s research uses inspiration from natural, biological systems to guide the design, formulation, and/or fabrication of unique systems and technologies. Some of the core areas of research in our laboratory are biofouling, bacterial biofilms, and the development of technologies to detect and/or treat bacterial infections. Dr. Cady’s work also focuses on the development of microchip-based sensors and nanoscale electronic devices called “memristors” that mimic the function of neuronal synapses. He received a B.A. in Biology, also from Cornell. Dr. Cady was recently named Empire Innovation Professor at SUNY Polytechnic.
