Gao Research Group

Welcome to the Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory!

Our research thrusts:

  • Development of electronic biosensors based on two-dimensional (2D) materials to understand complex biological systems
  • Translation of biosensing devices into biomedical applications in early disease diagnosis, point-of-care testing, and wearable health monitoring
  • Strain- and defect-engineering in atomically thin materials and their van der Waals heterostructures for next-generation electronic biosensors.
