BioMEMS, bioNEMS, Lab-on-a-Chips and Organ-on-a-Chip have the potential to revolutionize the so called personalized medicine. Health monitoring and treatments can be tailored to a single individual by analyzing biomolecules and cells in order to obtain precise diagnoses. To succeed in making such bio-devices and bio-systems, innovative material and methodologies of integration are crucial.  This symposium will give scientists the opportunity to share and discuss the latest micro- and nanofabricated biomedical devices like BioMEMS, bioNEMS, Lab-on-a-Chip and Organ-on-a-Chip. In particular the different bio-device and bio-system phases such as modeling, testing, sensing, integration, micro-nanofabrication and applications shall be discussed.
