About the Project

MicroRNAs are small, non-coding RNAs that are promising biomarkers for diagnostic technologies targeted toward different types of cancer, viruses (e.g. COVID-19), and disease states. Because of the often very low levels of circulating mRNAs, reliable detection and quantification of microRNAs in point-of-care settings has been challenging to achieve. This project will advance a new and innovative electrochemical biosensor platform capable of detecting microRNAs in raw, unprocessed bodily fluids (e.g. urine) and suitable for point-of-care settings. This project will be conducted in close collaboration with industry partner Universal Biosensors, and provide PhD candidates with valuable firsthand experience in industrial process development and technology translation.
