Breu explicació del projecte / Brief explanation of your project
Circulating microRNAs and long non-coding RNAs as well as autoantibodies are promising cancer biomarkers for liquid biopsy. My goal is to develop a rapid, portable, easy-use, and reliable electrochemical nanostructured multisensor platform for their simultaneous detection in whole blood for early breast cancer diagnosis, prognosis and patient follow-up.
The idea is to design a portable device that can monitor and diagnose the condition of the user, similar to a glucose meter. To do that, I will merge the advantages of nucleic acid analogues with those of graphene-nanoparticle hybrid composites to develop a platform based on the use of inexpensive screen printed electrodes, produced by cutting-edge green technologies. An interdisciplinary approach will drive me towards the development and delivery of this novel diagnostic device with tremendous potential in nanomedicine.
