Development of biosensors for the detection of steroid hormones under NICKI funding

As part of NICKI 2021 Innovation Funding, a team of researchers from the Department of Synthetic Biology and Immunology will develop a new set of biosensors for steroid hormones that will work on the basis of split protein domains. We expect the technology to enable the production of accurate sensors for steroid hormones that are easy to use and affordable, making them extremely interesting on the market. The project will enable us to raise the TRL level of technology, produce a prototype and promote business development.

The team includes Erik Rihtar, Anže Verbič, and Klemen Mezgec, Maruša Ramšak from the Department of Synthetic Biology and Immunology, and external collaborators Katarina Pivko, Tomaž Bizjak and David Hampton.
