Emeritus College Online Seminar with Dr. Feng Ding

Emeritus College Online Seminar with Dr. Feng Ding

October 15 (Thursday) 10:00am – 11:30am, Online Seminar:  Creating a Faster COVID-19 Test with Dr. Feng Ding, Associate Professor of Physics and Faculty Scholar (CU School of Health): The limited and delayed detection of SARS-CoV-2 infections so far has become the bottleneck for stopping the continued community transmission of the virus. We propose to break the bottleneck by developing a novel aptamer-linked nanoplasmon sensor to detect virus proteins in real time with high specificity and sensitivity. Further validation of the method for detecting actual virus will allow fast screening and isolation of COVID-19 patients, a key to break the chain of transmission for stopping the current and future pandemics. Click HERE to see Dr. Ding’s recent article in the NEWSSTAND.

Please contact Nicci Hanewald at nherman@clemson.edu with any questions or if you would like information about joining the presentation.
