Welcome to the Bonham Research Lab at the Metropolitan State University of Denver

Our work focuses on the development of simple, convenient bio-sensor DNA probes for the quantitative, rapid detection of proteins and other bio-molecules. This approach simplifies the rational design of sensors directed to bind any target of interest and allows the sensors to have affinity and specificity on the order of natural binding interactions. We have targeted diverse human transcription factors, biological toxins, and bacterial antigens. These bio-sensors represent a convenient, versatile, and readily generalized approach for bio-marker detection.
