Our group’s research interests are primarily focused on the development and validation of biochemical sensors and biophotonic devices for application in clinical or point-of-care diagnostics. We conduct research to create novel biosensors devices that can reversibly measure a wide range of biomarkers in biological samples at nano/micromolar sensitivity. The applications of these biochemical sensors are in wearable devices, minimally-invasive sensors with subcutaneous probes, and implantable chips for prolonged biomarker monitoring.
