Developing biosensors for rapid detection of precious metals as well as heavy metals

Heavy metals can be found in diverse consumables like foods, cannabis,cosmetics, drinking water and so detection and identification of their concentration is an important concern for public health. Each country has its own regulations for permitted concentration which are considered as harmless for public health. The high concentration of heavy metals can cause several damages and causes toxicity for adults and children. Rapid detection of these molecules so is very important for industries and governmental organizations.

The development of an artificial intelligence-based platform to improve thecharacterization and the identification of unstable atherosclerotic plaques

Heart attacks and strokes are the leading causes of death and disability in the world. They are caused by the rupture of dangerous fatty deposits, called plaques, that build up in the arteries of the neck and heart. The only current method to identify whether a person is at risk of having a heart attack or stroke is to measure the narrowing of the artery caused by the plaque. However, this method is insufficient and leads to misdiagnosis or inappropriate treatment allocation.
