Longitudinal Monitoring of Ribonucleic Acid Content of a Live Cell with a Nanotube Pore Interface

Aleksandr Noy | 18-ERD-011

Executive Summary

We will develop a carbon nanotube-based platform for sampling, sequencing, and monitoring the ribonucleic acid of a cell over its life cycle, enabling us to track its response to stimuli such as pathogens and medicines. This technology may provide game-changing support for medical research and the development of countermeasures for chemical and biological threats.
