Thrust #1: Amplification biochips and implantable sensor bar-code sensors
Goal: Thrust 1 will develop biochip amplification techniques and implantable bar-code sensors to detect multiple biochemical markers simultaneously.
Project 1.1: Design and validation of cartridge-based assays and systems using microfluidics, paper fluidics, nanoparticles, and amplification
Project 1.2: Design and validation of implantable systems including optimization of the transduction and recognition elements of the assay and development of biocompatible materials
Cartridge-based assays, cartridges, and barcoded multimodal tissue-penetrating optical sensors
