CPN Research: The power of a pulse

Drs. Cheng and HwangIf a team of Lehigh researchers is successful, one of the next high-tech tools to unveil biological secrets will be a device that can identify substances at the molecular level—and potentially decipher DNA—and that will fit into the palm of your hand. Xuanhong Cheng, assistant professor of materials science and engineering and bioengineering, James Hwang, professor of electrical and computer engineering, and research scientist Cristiano Palego are in the early stages of developing a handheld sensor that can identify cells, confirm their viability, and perform lightning-fast DNA sequencing.
