Project Description: 

Students will work on low-cost ultrasensitive smartphone-based diagnostics. The ultra-sensitivity of our diagnostic platform, in theory, would enable early-detection of a broad range of previously-difficult-to-diagnosed conditions, such as oncological (cancer), heart, infectious, and neurological diseases. Students will assist in preparing single antibody nanoarrays as well as performing microscopy experiments. ANY STUDENTS WITH INTENTION TO SPEND ALL SUMMER IN THE LAB WILL BE GIVEN PRIORITY.

Who we are - BIOMAN LAB (BIOmolecular Mechanics And Nanotechnology LABoratory) develops precision tools from the molecular to centimeter-scale for bottom-up reconstruction of mechanical systems involved in disease pathogenesis. Along the way, the lab invents frugal technologies in the global health context for resource-poor settings. Rizal is the recipient of an Arizona Biomedical Research Commission New Investigator Award and an NIH Director's New Innovator Award.
