PhD Opportunity: Optical nano-biosensors to detect opioids and fentanyl-related substances

Opioid use is currently on the increase and its abuse poses serious risks that affects the economic state of all societies worldwide as well as health and social wellbeing. It is estimated that opioids affect 26.4 to 36 million people worldwide where 25% of users are unable to be treated with existing medical therapies. Prescription opioids include semi-synthetic and natural opioids such as morphine, codeine, and synthetic opioids such as tramadol, methadone and fentanyl. Many of the synthetic opioids, such as fentanyl and derivatives, are produced and distributed illegally. With an increased availability ...
