Health diagnosis made simpler
Date:8/23/2010

fectious diseases around the globe, it's becoming more critical to have good diagnostic systems in poor countries so proper treatment can be provided rapidly and so that there is a global early-warning system to alert the public if new and significant outbreaks of disease emerge, Garcia said.

To help accomplish that, Garcia and Schneider are teaming with nanotechnology experts Vladimiro Mujica and Manuel Marquez.

They hope to establish collaborations with Latin American universities, government leaders and entrepreneurs to develop the new diagnostic device.

"We believe a joint U.S.-Latin America technology development effort will spark economic activity that will benefit both regions and prevent disease outbreaks and social unrest in our part of the world", said Mujica, a professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry in ASU's College of Liberal Arts & Sciences.

Marquez, an entrepreneur and adjunct faculty member in the School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering, is president and research leader of the company YNANO. The company specializes in droplet-nanoengineering for biomedical applications, including Integrascope for disease diagnosis.

"I'm excited about the potential for this device, and that students can be directly engaged in the research and development process," Marquez said. "I've devoted more than a decade of my career to enabling engineers and scientists to rapidly apply their basic discoveries to solving real-life problems."
