The Georgiadis Group’s research focuses on the development and use of novel label-free detection methods based on surface plasmon resonance (SPR) spectroscopy. Our current projects are focused around the development of novel label-free DNA microarray technologies. Areas of study include:
- Electric field effects at interfaces – Rapid mismatch discrimination by electric field induced denaturation
- DNA/protein interactions – screening methods for anti-tumor aptamers as tumor targeting reagents.
- DNA/drug interactions – kinetics of binding novel platinum anti-tumor drugs with oligonucleotides.
