Sensor Development
"First-Line Detection"

With a strong understanding of biological processes at the membrane interface, we develop novel biosensing platforms for the detection of cancer biomarkers by focusing on the design of smart biological interfaces, which comprise a supported lipid bilayer as a critical component linking the substrate and the target recognition element.
