Bioelectronics & bioelectrochemistry lab

Research Interests / Job description
Our lab is developing new hybrid bioelectronic and bioelectrochemical tools for basic science and diagnostic applications. Research includes:

• Detection of protein and genetic biomarkers using bioelectrochemical sensors
• Characterization of aberrant genomic and proteomic markers using bioelectronic platforms
• Development of flexible biochips for detection of pathogenic markers
• Study host-bacterial interactions by a real-time 3D mapping with electrochemical sensor arrays
• Transduction of bio-recognition events to electrical currents: characterization, manipulation and applications
• Electrochemical modulation of conformational behavior and biomolecular interactions
• Investigation of biomolecular interaction kinetics and structural dynamics with single-molecule biophysical approaches

WE DESIGN AND DEVELOP PLATFORMS INTEGRATING FUNCTIONAL BIOMATERIALS WITH ELECTRICALLY CONDUCTIVE NANO AND MICROINTERFACES (ORGANIC, e.g., CARBON NANOTUBES OR INORGANIC, e.g., METALS)
