Welcome to the Nano-Biosensors Lab! We exist to protect lives through rapid diagnostics. 

Our goal is to save lives, protect the nation, and sustain the economy by diagnosing infectious diseases early, rapidly, inexpensively, and simply through point-of-care field-operable nanoparticle-based biosensors. Complementary to these nano-devices are anti-counterfeiting detection systems for product authentication, serialization, and tamper-evidence.
