research interests

  • Biosensors and biomaterials and their applications in solving a broad range of problems in vitro and in vivo
    Employing new biomaterials, nanomaterials and new platforms to design ultra-sensitive sensors for specific in vitro or in vivo sensing in complex sample at the point-of-care
    High specificity is achieved via biotechnology platforms - innovative selection technology (SELEX) are used to generate bio-functionalized elements capable of performing specific target recognition, and high sensitivity is obtained with subsequent biomolecular cascading, self-assembled amplifications
