Diagnostics Research

This research theme explores novel molecular detection modalities, biomarkers and assay integration strategies.

Rapid diagnostics is an essential part of research, surveillance, therapeutic intervention and clinical management of infectious diseases. Research in this discipline requires a thorough understanding of disease pathologies, and systems interaction as well as an interdisciplinary approach to assay development integrating aspects of biomedical sciences, chemistry, physics, engineering, data science as well as social science. Diagnostics innovation has an exceptional potential for impact and is considered a leading tool to address the global threat of antimicrobial resistance.
