Project description

Ultrafast microscopy for tumour classification

Tumour classification usually takes place via histopathological evaluation of stained tumour biopsies combined with immunohistochemical exploration to identify specific biomolecular signatures of proteins and nucleic acids. However, the intra-tumour cell heterogeneity impedes diagnosis and therapy, leading to cell clones that acquire drug resistance and cause recurrence. The EU-funded TROPHY project aims to develop a novel label-free vibrational microscopy approach that can image molecular biomarkers with unprecedented speed and chemical selectivity. It will integrate AI to produce fast results and assist in the tumour grading process even during surgery. In turn, this will translate into evidence-based therapies tailored to the tumour characteristics and improved clinical outcomes, including increased survival rates.
