Collaboration between the School of Engineering and School of Medicine leads to a novel Bioprobe that fits in a single cell. The labs of Drs. Jelena Vuckovic and Sam Gambhir have collaborated to develop a new strategy that has recently been published in Nano Letters and has received news coverage on the Stanford Report, Stanford Engineering News, IEEE Spectrum, Popular Science, Science Daily,,, and Compound Semiconductor News. Drs. Gary Shambat and Raj Kothapalli worked together to make this exciting work possible. The work will also be featured on the cover in an upcoming issue of the printed version of the journal Nano Letters.
