"Using Nanomaterials for Ultrasensitive Biomolecular Detection"
Abstract: New methods for biomolecular detection are urgently needed for faster and earlier disease diagnosis. We have developed nano structured detectors using a templates electrodeposition method that are able to read out very low levels of target analytes in clinical samples. Applications in cancer, organ transplantation and infectious disease will be discussed.
