Sniffing Out Cancer

It's not just about building the first mechanical dog's nose. It's greater than that.

Dog's Nose

It's about sniffing out cancer. It's about identifying biomarkers in human breath and saliva for noninvasive detection, modeled after the 220 million scent receptors in a dog's nose. It's about a team of Baylor research scientists and students working together to separate, cool, ionize and feed molecules into a magnetic field where they can be identified.

It's about a world-class facility home to over 150 teaching and research labs and cutting-edge instrumentation. And it's about a place where discovery is informed by faith and infused with great people who come together to do remarkable things.
