This project aims to create new science which will enable the development of a superior new class of biodetection
technique, suitable for medical diagnostics and other sensing applications. A multi-disciplinary
approach will be taken; combining expertise in a number of fields to explore the use of electrical rather than
traditional optical means to control energy transfer and luminescence in novel molecular and nanoparticlebased
systems. These advances, will transform bio-analytical science by giving rise to innovative detection
techniques, which are low-cost, rapid and highly sensitive.
