Welcome to the Global Alliance for Rapid Diagnostics (GARD)!
We are a multidisciplinary group of researchers and practitioners from around the world committed to improving global health by reducing infectious diseases through early diagnosis.
Vision: Prevent illness, save lives, and improve quality of life through rapid diagnostics.
Mission: To develop portable, affordable, and globally deployable nano-enabled biosensor technologies for rapid and early detection of infectious diseases in populations who need these technologies the most but who can afford them the least.
Output: Publications and presentations, joint funding, capacity building (workshops and lectures), student research, and faculty/student training
DNA-based electrochemical nanobiosensor for the detection of Phytophthora palmivora (Butler) Butler, causing black pod rot in cacao (Theobroma cacao L.) pods (in review)
