The Department of Biochemistry of University of Cape Coast [UCC] has held a seminar on biosensors for point of need biomedical applications and 3D functional cardiac tissue models for regenerative medicine.
The speaker at the seminar, Dr. Prosper Kanyong, a former student of UCC and now a researcher with the Oxford Impedence Diagnostics of the University of Oxford in U.K, said biosensors are important in the scientific development of every nation due to its analytical properties in finding solutions to scientific problems.
Currently Dr. Kanyong and a team of expert in his field are carrying out a research to design biosensor devices that can check the authenticity of market products and detect illness.
According to Dr. Kanyong, the research when completed will be presented to government and other stakeholders for collaboration in order to advance its usage for the common good of all.
