Design and development of highly specific 'bioelectronic' interfaces between inorganic surfaces and biological species (antibodies, microbial cells, enzymes and redox proteins). This work has led to the production of a number of electrochemical and microelectromechanical sensor systems capable of the direct, rapid measurement of biological and chemical species in complex matrices. The current work being carried out by the Diagnostic & Therapeutic Technologies Research Group can be broadly defined in three inter-related, multi-disciplinary areas. These are:
High Frequency Degenerate Mode Acoustic Sensors (DSAW): EPSRC Project (£778k, Nov 2012 - June 2016)
The Multi-Corder: EPSRC Programme Grant (£3.4M, May 2013 - Oct 2017)
Early-Warning Sensing Systems for Infectious Diseases (i-sense): EPSRC IRC (£11.1M, Oct 2013 - Sept 2018)
Personal Risk Assessment in Febrile Illness to Optimize Real-life Management Across the EU (PERFORM): EC H2020 (Jan 2016 - Dec 2020)
