  Penn Researchers Work to Expand Access to Health Care Using Nanotechnology
 
In a project co-led by David Issadore, Assistant Professor in Bioengineering, an interdisciplinary team at Penn is using commercially available nanotechnology to develop a low-cost, handheld diagnostic device that can monitor HIV. Not only would this device increase access to high-quality treatment of HIV in developing countries and disadvantaged parts of the world, it would also lower the cost of health care in the United States.
