 Biography
Research Interest :

Point-of-care (POC) immunoassays (i.e., lateral-flow tests) have become one of the main streams diagnostics because these tests require almost no instrument and training and can return results to patients with minimum waiting. A major challenge of the POC diagnostic development is to lower the assay’s limit of detection (LOD) toward the range of the diagnostics used in hospital laboratories. Due to the rarity (range from ca. nanomolar to femtomolar concentrations and below) of the target analytes, a simple and efficient biological sample handling technique that is integrated into the diagnostic module is essential for developing highly sensitive POC immunoassays. To address this fundamental issue my research aims to study stimuli-responsive “smart” nanomaterials, and apply them for the development of low-cost, non-instrumented (e.g. self-powered), easy to use point-of-care devices.

Dr. Franco Obregon also administers the flow cytometry laboratory of the ETH and University of Zurich.

 Biography
Research Interest :

Dr. Franco-Obregon′s scientific focus is understanding how tissue development is modulated by mechanical stimuli. Most tissues modulate their developmental programs to match the mechanical stresses present in the behaving organism. These include gravitational forces, tensile strains arising from the elongation of bones, compressive forces within joints, or dynamic mechanical stimulation resulting from muscular activity. The most notable examples of such tissues are skeletal, cardiac and smooth muscles, bone, cartilage, tendons and blood vessels. In fact, developmental programs that are regulated by mechanical stimuli are the rule, rather than the exception, giving rise to greater than 80% of our entire body mass. Moreover, forms of cell behavior such as migration, axonal outgrowth, blood clotting and extracellular matrix deposition are also regulated by mechanical stimuli. Indeed, most cells require some form of mechanotransduction to survive. Mechanosensitive developmental programs are thus ubiquitous, ongoing and of great clinical importance. In particular, I am interested in those mechanotransductive developmental processes that impinge on cellular calcium homeostasis. Calcium regulates pivotal processes such as cellular communication, differentiation, growth and survival. Not surprisingly, a breakdown in cellular calcium homoeostasis results in devastating developmental abnormalities. Mechanically-gated calcium channels are the ideal molecular entities to translate mechanical stimuli into a calcium response that then regulates key enzymatic and genetic cascades involved in complex tissue development. Understanding how the cell translates the entry, sequestration and release of calcium from intracellular stores into a developmental response will lead to the development of more effective therapeutic strategies aimed at reversing trauma- and age-related cellular degeneration.

Whilst at Dongshin University he was also associated with the center of Optical Micro Device System and Thin Film Laboratory, Department of Physics at University of Rajasthan, India. From 2006 to 2008, Marshal had held Scientist Fellow position at National Physical Laboratory, New Delhi, India and worked on self assembled monolayers and micro fluidics. During his work at NPL, he had worked on developing different types of matrixes for bio-sensors and solar cells. Before joined as a Scientist at CSIR-Center for Cellular and Molecular Biology in 2009, he was a Senior Fellow in Department of Bioengineering, University of Washington, Seattle, USA. His current research is on to development of micro-fluidic base bio-sensors and using different electrochemical and biophysical phenomena to understand cells interaction at nano-material surfaces. Currently Dr Dhayal is Editor-in-Chief of Advanced Electrochemistry published by American Scientific Publisher, USA.
