Thermodynamic Detection of Cancer Biomarkers on Paper

Daniel Kamei of the University of California Los Angeles in the U.S. will develop a paper-based diagnostic that can rapidly concentrate and detect low concentrations of cervical cancer-specific biomarkers in self-collected vaginal swabs. Cervical cancer is a major health problem, particularly in regions with limited health care where there are no effective screening programs. The test will be evaluated on existing cervical samples that have already been analyzed for HPV and cancer using conventional methods.
