Using Exosomes, Duke Mechanical Engineers Develop More Efficient Diagnostic Platform for Cancer, Other Diseases

Depiction of exosome
Researchers in the labs of Tony Jun Huang, William Bevan Distinguished Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science, and Tuan Vo-Dinh, R. Eugene and Susie E. Goodson Distinguished Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Duke, collaborated on a study, which was published March 8, 2024 in Science Advances. The open-access article is titledAcoustic Separation and Concentration of Exosomes for Nucleotide Detection: ASCENDx.” The study centers around exosomes, which are tiny biological particles released by cells that contain genetic material in the form of ribonucleic acid (RNA).
