Research: Rational Design and Synthesis of Multifunctional Nanostructures for Point-of-care Diagnosis with Electrochemistry and Surface-enhanced Raman Scattering

Dr Yuling Wang is an Australian Research Council (ARC) DECRA Fellow (2014-2017). Since obtaining her PhD in 2009, she has been the recipient of three competitive national and international fellowships including prestigious Alexander von Humboldt (AvH) fellowship in 2010 and German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) individual grant in 2012. Since 2013, she has been working in Prof. Trau’s group on developing biosensors for point-of-care diagnosis, and continues publishing in leading journals, such as ACS Nano, Anal. Chem. Chem.Comm. etc. Her current research topics are design and synthesis of multifunctional nanostructures (fluorescent clusters and plasmonic nanoparticles) for sensitive biomarker detection by employing an innovative analytical/sensor platform with electrochemistry and surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) as read-out technology.
