Microelectronics has profoundly transformed the way we live, work, communicate and play, especially with the advent of microprocessors, high-density storage media, sensors and actuators, lithium batteries, internet, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. In this talk, I shall first retrace my journey of the metamorphosis of a statistical geneticist-turned-biomedical researcher, and then provide real examples of research projects that can be and have been enhanced by the use of microelectronics. I shall also expose some research areas that are badly in need of microelectronic engineering. These applications would also transform biomedical research, and may hold great promises in providing better therapeutics and diagnostics, improving lives for people all over the world.
