Freeburg, Chris

  Faculty Mentor: Craig Stephens
Chlamydia infections are endemic in the Pacific Islands. This disease can be serious, among other conditions causing increased susceptibility to HIV and urethritis in men and pelvic inflammation and scarring of the fallopian tubes in women. The goal of this project is implementation of a low-cost and rapid method for screening this disease in collaboration with Diagnostics for the Real World.
