Learn more about your impact

Sensors inside everything from cell phones to self-driving cars may one day analyze your breath for the first signs of disease, identify pollutants in drinking water or safeguard the public by detecting explosives, trace vapors and chemical signatures. Highly sensitive sensors coupled with exceptional detection and data processing technologies hold the promise to make this possible. We develop new detection technologies for biomedical and environmental health research, build wireless personal sensors for mobile health applications and explore fundamental natural phenomena at the single-molecule level for next-generation detection technologies.

Impact of Donor Support

  • Donors bring the world’s brightest minds to Arizona by supporting endowed chairs and professorships.
  • Leaders rise to the top. The Tip of the Fork program enables Sun Devil student-athletes to develop leadership skills through volunteering in their community.
  • Entrepreneurship thrives at ASU. Two examples: The Prepped program supporting minority entrepreneurs has fueled 100 small businesses.
  • And the Edson Student Entrepreneur Initiative has supported 1,000+ students and 297 unique ventures over 15 years.

We believe ASU Biodesign is producing some of the most innovative cancer research in the country."
