Photoelectrochemical biosensing for COVID-19: virus and antibodies

This project aims to develop a Photoelectrochemical (PEC) biosensor based on photoactive nanoparticles such as Quantum Dots (QDs) for the detection of COVID19 and related antibodies. Highly efficient QDs based on engineered core/multi-shelled structures will be developed and their interaction with a molecular recognition element (MRE) layer will be investigated.
