Bianca Jones, biochemistry major at University of Detroit Mercy, spent her ReBUILDetroit summer research experience as part of an international, interdisciplinary team focusing on the global challenges of health research at Aarhus University in Denmark.
Jones took part in a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant with researchers from Michigan Technological University which looked at biosensor technology and how it could be used in point-of-care devices.
“It’s like Pac Man, we’re searching through the body looking for these biomarkers,” said Jones. “And once we find it – waka waka waka – we can analyze it and figure out the limitations of each biomarker.”
