Abstract:
    The project aims at developing a device which potentially measures the levels of synapsin protein as a biomarker for Alzheimer's Disease.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Easy diagnosis of Alzheimer's from blood which is easy as compared to processes that are already in use like sampling from CSF or MRI scans.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Alzheimer's kills more people than those killed by breast cancer and prostate cancer combined.
How will the solution works
    The diagnosis will be based on taking a blood sample from the suspected patient. It will then detect the levels of said protein in the blood and confirm the presence or absence of disease.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Not any competitors as of now.
