The awesomeness of this development cannot be underestimated! Students, get in there and make stuff! It's like the best equipped and brightest garage ever.
Dr. Mario Cabodi (BME Research Assistant Professor) and the Klapperich Lab are excited to be part of this grant! Our team is focused on sample preparation methods upstream of two very promising new optical detection technologies. Please drop us a line or follow the link for more information.
Link to news article about the grant! The Phase I STTR project in partnership with BioHelix Corporation will focus on the most abundant sexually transmitted disease (STD) pathogens: Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) and Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG). The scientific literature clearly shows that molecular testing is the most sensitive means of detecting... More
Dr. Justyn Jaworski, (BME '04) was recently named to a tenure track position in Chemical Engineering at Hanyang University in Seoul, Korea. Justyn worked in the Klapperich Lab and went on to University of California, Berkeley, where he completed his Ph.D. in Bioengineering with Dr. Seung-Wuk Lee. Congratulations, Justyn!
Qingqing's thesis in Mechanical Engineering is titled "Microfluidic Platform for PCR Based Diagnostics."
