Layer-by-layer coated nanomaterials for early ovarian cancer detection

Ovarian cancer poses a significant challenge due to its often late-stage diagnosis and limited effective detection methods. Seeking to revolutionize early detection strategies, my project focuses on developing a novel approach using Layer-by-Layer (LbL) coated nanomaterials. By harnessing electrostatic self-assembly principles, I aim to create a finely tuned system that improves the detection signal and ensures its targeted delivery to cancer cells.
