Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) accounts for 31% of deaths worldwide, making it the major cause of global mortality. The largest risk factor associated with CVD is a raised level of Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol level. We have therefore generated a DNA Origami filter designed to selectively capture the most common forms of dangerous LDL cholesterol in the bloodstream – small and electronegative LDL cholesterol.

We are Sydney University’s BIOMOD 2019 team, the FilterPhytes.
