Nanofiber-based probes for medical diagnostics


The American National Science Foundation (NSF) has granted $250,000 to a R&D project dedicated to nanofiber-based probes for medical diagnostics. Two professors from Clemson University – Konstantin Kornev and Igor Luzinov – will conduct the research and development with two teams of graduate students ; “Kornev’s group will focus on the development of the fiber probes themselves, while Luzinov’s will concentrate on creating smart coatings that will expel fluid upon heating.
