Paper Analytical Device (PAD) Project
This research focuses on the development of paper analytical devices to detect fake pharmaceuticals and perform other analytical tasks, such as measuring iodine content of iodized salt. The overall goal of this project is to "crowdsource" chemical analysis, revealing spatial and temporal information that will be useful for public health, forensic, and environmental applications.
At the EIGH, our researchers use biochemistry - or the study of chemical substances and their vital role within living organisms - to combat various global health challenges, such as antibiotic resistance and counterfeit drugs.
