That’s gold! Griffith finds cheap way to detect cancer

Griffith School of Engineering and Built Environment
Griffith University scientists have developed a new class of nanomaterials that could detect early cancer. The inexpensive, non-invasive diagnostic tool can deliver sensitive and specific results that are easily and quickly interpreted with less reliance on laboratory equipment. Working with the team from the University of Wollongong (UOW), the researchers have developed a new class […]
