Researchers develop ‘lab on a chip’ for personalized drug efficacy monitoring

UCI researchers and collaborators have developed a “lab on a chip” platform to facilitate continuous, inexpensive, rapid and personalized drug screening. The technology is capable of evaluating the effectiveness of treatments on cancer cells without bulky readout equipment or requiring the shipment of samples to labs. The scientists’ work is the subject of a new […]

UCI engineering researchers get $1.9 million grant from NIH for ‘microtsunami’ microscope

The National Institutes of Health has awarded UCI engineering researchers a four-year, $1.9 million grant for the development of a noninvasive biophotonics technology platform. The proposed new optical tool will enable scientists to investigate the role of mechanical forces in normal-tissue disease development, and it has applications for high-throughput drug screening. The collaborative, interdisciplinary project […]

UCI researchers lead invention of blood-based assay to detect chronic fatigue syndrome

About 2 million people in the U.S. suffer from a mysterious illness known as myalgic encephalomyelitis, or chronic fatigue syndrome. One of the challenges healthcare professionals have faced in diagnosing it has been the lack of a clear biomarker, something in a patient’s bloodstream to signal the cause of the problem. Researchers at UCI and […]
