The project aims at developing a novel non-invasive sensor platform for simultaneous detection and measurement of multiple biomarkers related to diabetes, cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and colorectal diseases (CRD). The photonic (laser based) sensor platform will be based on Leeds’ patented random laser technique and spectrally resolved photoluminescent lifetimes (SRPL) using a proprietary photonic chip approach successfully applied for non-invasive glucose sensing. The developed integrated photonic multi-sensor platform will be the first of its kind in clinical point-of-care, self-monitoring personalised medicine and wellness settings. The project will be interdisciplinary in nature with collaborations with School of Medicine and Health.
