The recent pandemic outbreak of the SARS-CoV-2 is demonstrating the vulnerability of our globalized society for such threats. Governments around the globe were forced to implement counter measures that put a high burden on the public life and our economy. One of the main reasons for the need for such measures are inadequacies of our current disease detection system. State-of-the-art systems, although very accurate, are too slow and too expensive to effectively detect infected subjects and help to prevent the spreading of a pandemic disease on a societal level. Within this project, we will develop a rapid test system, based on lateral flow assays, with improved sensitivity, while maintaining the point-of-need principle. This new test is a unique tool with a high potential to dramatically impact the spreading of infectious diseases such as COVID-19, and to decrease mortality and the high economic burden of pandemic diseases.
This 30-month scientific Postdoc project represents an excellent opportunity for original research at the interface of academia and industry. The focus is the immuno-assay development for the COVID-19 test based on our novel electrochemical readout technology for lateral flow assays. The project is embedded in a collaboration of the Laboratory of Biosensors and Bioelectronics (LBB) at ETH Zürich, the University Hospital Basel, the pre-launch Startup Hemetron, SuSoS and konplan ag. It furthermore includes supporting the device development, the test validation and clinical support as well as supporting the regulatory documentation.
You will have the chance to communicate your results to the scientific community and to work in an innovative, highly collaborative, and energetic environment on a highly impactful project at the interface of academic research and startup development. The position is fully funded by the Botnar Foundation for a 30-month period.
