Project Description
Rapid sensing of DNA/RNA at Point-of-care (i.e. detection on site) has a significant impact in various fields, from preventing widespread outbreaks of infectious diseases to monitoring environmental pollutions. You will be a member of our team to develop the next generation of POC detection device based on the technologies recently developed in our lab. The research involves an integration of bionanotechnology, microfluidics, image processing, and 3-D printing to design and build a prototype for the real-world applications.
