Mutharasen is an expert in biosensors, bioreactors and process metallurgy. He recently developed a millimeter-size cantilever biosensor that, in only minutes, can detect cells and proteins in trace samples. The sensor could have wide applications in medical diagnostic testing (prostate cancer), detecting contamination in food products (E. coli bacteria) and monitoring for biothreat agents (anthrax).
The recipient of numerous awards and recognitions, Mutharasan has served on the advisory board of several organizations including the United Nations, United Engineers, Aluminum Company of America and Smith Kline Beecham.
