Profile
Summary
Martha Vardaki is a PhD candidate in ‘BioSpec’ research group at the University of Exeter, which is developing prostate cancer diagnosis using Raman spectroscopy.

Strongly motivated by her pharmacy background, Martha is keen on the diverse ways that the interaction of light and matter can assist disease diagnosis. Her current research focuses on the application of deep Raman techniques to prostate cancer diagnosis. She studies the spectroscopic behaviour and Raman signal distribution, both in tissue phantoms and prostate human tissue, in collaboration with clinical partners in the Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust. In parallel, she explores the detection of potential bladder cancer biomarkers in urine samples. So far, Martha has presented eleven lectures/posters in various national and international conferences, and co-authored 2 peer-reviewed papers outlining the very important role of Raman spectroscopy in current diagnostics. In 2014, she was awarded with an ABS (Association of British Spectroscopists) Trust Bursary to attend the international spectroscopy conference SPEC and in April 2015, her work won the title of the ‘’Most Innovative Poster’’ in Exeter University’s Postgraduate Research Showcase.
