Vini's successful PhD Thesis Defense
Congratulations to Vini Singh for successfully completing her PhD Thesis Defense (Nov 2016).
Our Research Objective is to Solve Real-world Problems in Health, Energy, and Environment.
Research Areas: Clinical Biosensors/Microarrays, Cancer Biophysics, and Voltage-driven Nano-Biocatalysis
Our projects are multi-disciplinary in nature involving nano and bio engineering, surface chemistry, biology, biophysics, bioanalytical, and material science. We address important societal problems related to disease diagnosis, drug development, biocatalysis, sustainable energy, and environmental science. We utilize several optical, electrochemical, spectral, and microscopic techniques to address our research objectives.
1. Non-invasive/minimally invasive new microarray imaging and electrochemical diagnostic arrays for large and small molecule disease markers.
2. Microarrays for cancer protein-protein interactions, small molecule drug development with binding and inhibition insights, and pollutant screening.
3. New nano architectures for basic understanding of enzyme electrocatalysis for applications in stereoselective synthesis of fine and specialty chemicals, fuel cells, niche bioelectronic devices, and biosensors.
4. Novel low-cost, high-throughput drug metabolism and inhibition assay platforms.
