A rapid, inexpensive, easy-to-use HIV meter

Description
  • Project Lead(s): Alexis Vallée-Bélisle

    We will develop an inexpensive, easy-to-use quantitative sensor that can detect and count antibodies that are diagnostic of HIV infection and progression. This technology will benefit global health by enabling everybody to monitor its disease state thus reducing transmission.

    A diagram depicts an antibody binding to a synthetic molecular switch, which opens and separates, causing a signal change that can be easily measured – a mechanism that will be used to develop an inexpensive sensor for detecting and counting antibodies related to HIV infection.
