Type of Research Project
- Basic science
What is the background of the project?
To develop new techniques to use in clinical diagnostic laboratories (by studies correlated with gold standard), especially immunoassay-based. What is the aim of the project? New diagnostic kit that is more efficient, rapid, and cost-effective What techniques and methods will be used? -Solid phase assay (antigen and antibody immobilization) -Nanoparticle labeling -Non-labeling SPR (Surface Plasmon Resonance)

-Solid phase assay (antigen and antibody immobilization) -Nanoparticle labeling -Non-labeling SPR (Surface Plasmon Resonance)
What is the role of the student?
- The student will mainly observe
- The student will observe the practical experiments but will be highly involved in the analysis of the results
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
-Trial to generate the idea of platform of assay -To work on the currently run project -Develop his/her own project, if possible
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
