The monitoring of human health through diagnostic devices is becoming pivotal in a society placing increasing importance on both early diagnostics and disease prevention. This project focuses on the development of next-generation biosensors for multiplexed rapid and high-sensitivity clinical diagnostics by combining functional biological molecules with semiconductor devices, and by building on our expertise in electronic biosensor development. The project will be linked to other ongoing work in this area.
We have recently founded a company to commercialise our existing biosensor technology (Relitect Ltd) and there will be opportunities to work collaboratively (and have secondments) with the company.
