Amanda is a PhD student under the supervision of Prof. Robert Forster in DCU.She holds a B.Sc degree in Technological Chemistry and a Master's degree in Analytical Chemistry from Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar).The specific aim of Amanda’s project is to develop a near-patient, sample-to-answer device for a fast, simple and cost-efficient detection of a panel of microRNA-based biomarkers to enable an early diagnosis and treatment of patients suffering from epilepsy.
Amanda’s current focus is on developing a high sensitivity electrochemical assay/sensor for the microRNA. This will then be integrated into a microfluidic device .
