Sweat-based wearable diagnostic sensors
This research project seeks to establish a new platform for detecting sweat-based biomarkers towards wearable devices that facilitates the monitoring of a subject’s physiological state and/or health condition.
Enhanced research experiences
The project involves interdisciplinary research, with elements related to: i) bioanalytical techniques and technologies; ii) nanomaterials development; and iii) biomolecule and tissue interactions with nanostructured materials. The project will involve supervision from academic staff with corresponding expertise.
The project will also involve working in bio-nanomaterials development at the Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication and with CSIRO Biomedical Manufacturing towards commercial prototypes.
There will be opportunities for an extended visit to an international laboratory in the 2nd or 3rd year of the project. These include laboratories in collaborating institutions such as the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart or Prof. Michael Sailor’s laboratories at UCSD.
