INTEGRATED MICROFLUIDIC PLATFORM FOR PROTEOMIC AND GENETIC EXOSOME DETECTION

Project description

An exosome detection platform for cancer diagnosis

Liquid biopsy is a non-invasive approach for personalised cancer diagnosis and relies on circulating tumour cells and tumour DNA. However, extracellular vesicles termed exosomes are emerging as promising biomarkers for prompt cancer detection. To facilitate routine exosome analysis in the clinic, scientists of the EU-funded IMPED project propose to develop a next-generation technology capable of extracting and analysing exosomes from liquid biopsies or serum samples at the proteomic and genomic levels. The technology will be the first to combine both intra- and extra-vesicle detection on a single platform, offering important insight into precision cancer management on an individual patient basis.
