UB named part of $1.1M bioscience project

The University of Bridgeport (UB) recently received $100,000 as a part of a $1.1 million biomedical research project, led by the Connecticut Analytical Corporation.

The project aims to find better ways to collect, store and process dried biological specimens – such as dried blood, urine or saliva – used for patient diagnosis. UB researchers will focus specifically on developing graphene-protein nanostructures.

Funding for the two-year project was awarded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. Researchers at Harvard, MIT, Yale, and Case Western Reserve University will also be participating. The project will be led by Prabir Patra, a UB professor.
