Cardiff University has established a new interdisciplinary training hub (IDTH) for a postgraduate student training and research program that addresses the urgent need for state-of-the-art biosensors and diagnostics. Biosensors find broad application in medicine and pharma, environmental monitoring, defence and security. A key challenge in biosensors and diagnostics is to combine ultra-sensitive detection technology with easy-to-use devices.
