    • Integration of cell phone imaging with microchip ELISA to detect ovarian cancer HE4 biomarker in urine at the point-of-care 

      Wang, Shuqi; Zhao, Xiaohu; Khimji, Imran; Akbas, Ragip; Qiu, Weiliang; Edwards, Dale; Cramer, Daniel William; Ye, Bin; Demirci, Utkan (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2011)
      Ovarian cancer is asymptomatic at early stages and most patients present with advanced levels of disease. Lack of cost-effective methods that can achieve frequent, simple and non-invasive testing hinders early detection ...
    • Involvement of Arabidopsis RACK1 in Protein Translation and Its Regulation by Abscisic Acid 

      Guo, Jianjun; Wang, Shuqi; Valerius, Oliver; Hall, Hardy; Zeng, Qingning; Li, Jian-Feng; Weston, David J.; Ellis, Brian E.; Chen, Jin-Gui (American Society of Plant Biologists, 2010)
      Earlier studies have shown that RACK1 functions as a negative regulator of abscisic acid (ABA) responses in Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana), but the molecular mechanism of the action of RACK1 in these processes remains ...
    • Living Bacterial Sacrificial Porogens to Engineer Decellularized Porous Scaffolds 

      Xu, Feng; Sridharan, BanuPriya; Durmus, Naside Gozde; Wang, Shuqi; Yavuz, Ahmet Sinan; Gurkan, Umut Atakan; Demirci, Utkan (Public Library of Science, 2011)
      Decellularization and cellularization of organs have emerged as disruptive methods in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Porous hydrogel scaffolds have widespread applications in tissue engineering, regenerative ...
    • Micro-a-fluidics ELISA for Rapid CD4 Cell Count at the Point-of-Care 

      Wang, ShuQi; Tasoglu, Savas; Chen, Paul Z.; Chen, Michael; Akbas, Ragip; Wach, Sonya; Ozdemir, Cenk Ibrahim; Gurkan, Umut Atakan; Giguel, Francoise F.; Kuritzkes, Daniel R.; Demirci, Utkan (Nature Publishing Group, 2014)
      HIV has become one of the most devastating pathogens in human history. Despite fast progress in HIV-related basic research, antiretroviral therapy (ART) remains the most effective method to save AIDS patients' lives. ...
    • Portable Microfluidic Chip for Detection of Escherichia coli in Produce and Blood 

      Wang, Shuqi; Inci, Fatih; Chaunzwa, Tafadzwa L; Ramanujam, Ajay; Vasudevan, Aishwarya; Subramanian, Sathya; Chi Fai Ip, Alexander; Sridharan, Banupriya; Gurkan, Umut Atakan; Demirci, Utkan (Dove Medical Press, 2012)
      Pathogenic agents can lead to severe clinical outcomes such as food poisoning, infection of open wounds, particularly in burn injuries and sepsis. Rapid detection of these pathogens can monitor these infections in a timely ...
    • Simple filter microchip for rapid separation of plasma and viruses from whole blood 

      Wang, Shuqi; Sarenac, Dusan; Chen, Michael; Huang, Shih-Han; Giguel, Francoise F; Kuritzkes, Daniel Robert; Demirci, Utkan (Dove Medical Press, 2012)
      Sample preparation is a significant challenge for detection and sensing technologies, since the presence of blood cells can interfere with the accuracy and reliability of virus detection at the nanoscale for point-of-care ...
