Ultrasensitive noninvasive disease monitoring platform

Year 2013
Project team Sangeeta Bhatia with Gabe Kwong, David Lee and Andrew Warren

Synthetic biomarkers

This project will leverage advances in nanotechnology to allow disease-specific enzymes to generate highly predictive ‘synthetic biomarkers’ that appear in the urine of patients for easy analysis. The approach dramatically broadens the number of diseases that could be detected and monitored by urinalysis and increases detection sensitivity and specificity. (Renewal from Fall 2013 grant round)

Glympse Bio

The technology from this project was spun out into a startup company, Glympse Bio.

Gabe Kwong presents their project at IdeaStream 2014.
