It was a big day — Michael successfully defended his thesis titled “Magnetic Biosensors for Immunoassays and Enzymatic Activity Quantification,” and Michael’s first first-author paper was accepted! Michael shared two assays he developed based on giant magnetoresistive (GMR) sensors. The first quantifies two biomarkers relevant to spontaneous preterm birth (link), and the second demonstrates the versatility of real-time enzyme-based release assays. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors. Congratulations, Dr. Sveiven!

As has become a tradition in our research group, we celebrated with a chip cake.
