Project summary

Based at the California Institute of Technology, Benjamin aims to develop a new diagnostic test for malaria in low-income countries, by designing fingertip-sized chip-based microscopes based on a novel principle of microscopy. At the LSHTM and in field trials in Africa, he will refine this approach and assess whether it is suitable for real-world scenarios in low-income countries.
