Pawan Jolly is a Research Scientist, interested primarily in the interdisciplinary field of applied science and specifically in the field of medical devices and diagnostics. His current work focusses on the development of a sensitive and robust biosensor for early detection of allergies as a part of Project ABBIE. Prior to joining the Wyss, Pawan worked as a Postdoctoral Research fellow at the University of Bath, United Kingdom where he worked on three projects namely: the Development of In-Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) medical device based on the integration of synthetic oligonucleotide-on field-effect transistors (Bio-FET) for the detection of pathogenic genes in a point-of-care format, glucose sensing for biofuel applications and printed circuit board (PBB) design based development of DNA sensors. Pawan finished his Ph.D. at the University of Bath with a Marie Curie Fellowship on the development of different types of aptasensor for prostate cancer diagnostics. He completed his Masters in Biomedical Engineering from Germany and did his master thesis in Philips, The Netherlands on optomagnetic immuno-biosensors. Pawan completed his Bachelors (B. Tech) in biotechnology from India. His main expertise lies in polymer chemistry, Surface bio-chemistry, analytical assay development, DNA and protein based biosensors, electrochemical sensors and optical biosensors.
