• Doctors perform many tests but standard methods of diagnosis are costly in terms of time, dollars and discomfort.
• Molecules associated with disease can be measured and can communicate important information about someone’s health.
• Scientists are working at the nanoscale to engineer technologies, like the “lab on a chip,” for non- invasive measuring of multiple health indicators at once.
• Students will learn about antibodies and antibody recognition using a model.
• Students will process a sensor array to determine the disease a patient may have based on the biosignature defined on the array.
