DARPA grants ASU up to $38.8 million to create epigenetic tool for fight against weapons of mass destruction
ASU researchers will develop new technology to meet demands of modern warfare and national security in a project funded by a major grant from a U.S. Department of Defense research agency. The goal is to build a device capable of detecting if people have been exposed to substances associated with weapons of mass destruction. The device will be a point-of-care device to aid in the treatment of individuals exposed to biological agents, radiation, chemicals and explosives. Jennifer Blain Christen, a Fulton Schools assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, will serve on an advisory group for the research team.
