Areas of Research

In our laboratory, we developed a new gold nanoparticle probe-based single-step, label-free, and washing-free biomolecular assay platform. Target molecules and species including proteins, DNAs, and infectious pathogens such as viruses and bacteria are detected by monitoring the gold nanoparticle aggregate formation using dynamic light scattering. We are currently using this assay platform to develop new diagnostic and screening tests for infectious diseases and early cancer detection. Our research aims to reveal both fundamental understanding and practical applications that will benefit both human and animal health management and infectious disease control.
