Low-Cost Cancer Biomarker Detector
This is an interdisciplinary, multi-center collaborative
project run jointly by VAVlab (Bogazici University), BioAFM Lab
(Bogazici University), Madak-Erdogan Lab (UIUC, USA). The CancerFind
project aims at developing and testing a spectroscopy-based, portable
and low-cost measurement device for early detection of (breast) cancer
biomarker metabolites. The device will allow multi-band detection and
will be optimized for the detection of CTCs (Circulating Tumor Cells).
The project is run in close collaboration with
Dr. H. Torun (Biosensor technologies, BioAFM Lab, Bogazici University)
and Dr. Z. Madak Erdogan (Molecular markers of cancer, UIUC).
