Multiplexed Biomarker Analysis to Improve Diagnostics of Infections and Infectious Disease
The concept of precision medicine is predicated on an ability to comprehend a patient’s disease state in a highly informed manner that ideally illuminates an effective treatment strategy. While commonly discussed in the context of diseases that progress relatively slowly, such as cancer, where genotyping has proven valuable in understanding somatic mutations, the application of precision medicine to infections and infectious diseases can be more challenging—especially for rapidly progressing conditions. To this end, our group is developing multiple technologies that aim to increase the depth of biomarker analysis that can be performed in a clinical laboratory setting. One such technology leverages well-established semiconductor fabrication methods to create highly multiplexed and robust silicon photonic biosensor arrays that are extremely sensitive and readily scalable to emerging challenges in point-of-care clinical diagnostics. Furthermore, the rapidity and multi-marker analytical capabilities of this technology assays offer benefits over conventional clinical diagnostic tools. In this talk I will discuss applications of this technology in the early detection of acute infections, longitudinal monitoring of emergent infections, and stratifying the risk of latent disease reactivation.
