Biomarkers in Sweat for Physical Stress Monitoring

Athletes commonly suffer from sport-related biochemical alterations as a result of overexertion. Health-monitoring wearable technologies can potentially be used as non-invasive tools for the identification of changes in biomarker levels in sweat. Here, we propose to develop the tools to rapidly measure protein changes in sweat. Our project aims to discover biomarkers in sweat for physical stress monitoring. In this study, we will be analyzing sweat samples from 25 athletes at Arizona State University and determine the basal and exercise-induced levels of multiple protein biomarkers, to serve for the future development of rapid tools for sweat diagnostics.
