MSU researchers developing improved technology for disease diagnosis

November 13, 2017View for printing

Montana State University researchers are working to develop a new technology that could make diagnosis of malaria and other diseases more accessible, potentially improving treatment for millions of people in areas with limited medical resources.

Stephanie McCalla, assistant professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering in MSU's College of Engineering, is leading a project to apply recent findings about the disease-detecting potential of microRNA - small molecules that regulate a variety of cellular functions in the body.
