Amplify Ignite Award 2017

Young UTS ARC IDEAL Hub researcher wins Amplify Ignite Award. Having done her PhD at ANU, Dr Noushin Nasiri has been working at UTS in the ARC funded IDEAL Research Hub with Professor Dayong Jin since the start of 2017 as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow, where she is working with industry partners developing a nanosensor to be applied in the early detection of diseases using human breath and/or saliva. Her initial PhD research revealed that when diseased, the biochemistry of the human body changes. This change can be detected in the breath or saliva and can be harnessed as an effective medical tool in place of current practices.
