Zhenan Bao of Stanford University in the U.S. will develop a low-cost sensing strip with a diagnostic reader to diagnose pre-eclampsia. The diagnosis is based upon the fact that there is an electrical current change when pre-eclampsia is present. If successful, this diagnostic tool could be used for the early detection and monitoring of this condition to avoid late-stage pregnancy complications.
