Electrical engineering student works on diagnostic device for...

October 26, 2021

Leilei Shi, a University of Cincinnati electrical engineering doctoral student, has focused his research on how to isolate and characterize exosomes — biomarkers of cancer and other diseases — using a low electric current. The tool offers the potential for noninvasive, point-of-care screening and early diagnosis with a small amount of saliva or blood. Leyla Esfandiari, associate professor of biomedical and electrical engineering, has advised Shi in the Integrative Biosensing Lab. Shi was named Graduate Student Engineer of the Month by UC’s College of Engineering and Applied Science.
