Early Stage Biosensor Detection of Ovarian Cancer
Biomedical Engineering
The Thompson Lab has already developed a method for a simple detection of LPA in the whole serum (a marker for ovarian cancer). We now plan to transfer the technology to an electronic device for signaling LPA in whole serum. This will be based on an ultra-high frequency acoustic wave device. Project will be performed in collaboration with Princess Margaret Hospital.
We would like to see work towards a prototype device being developed by the student.
Time commitment
Approx 1.5 days per week
Lab Experience. Some knowledge of basic electronics and hopefully some biology.
