“Early Stage Cancer diagnosis via HIghly sensitive Lab-On-chip multitarget systems

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The scope of the present research program is to push forward the research in magnetic biosensing at the cutting edge of the search for novel point-of-care oriented diagnostic tools based on nanotechnology. In particular the researcher will work within the consortium of the ESCHILO project (Early Stage Cancer diagnosis via HIghly sensitive Lab-On-chip multitarget systems) ESCHILO” Finanziato da Regione Lombardia nell’ambito delle risorse del POR FSE 2007/13 – Azione 2. – ID 46748083), involving academia, research institutions, small and big companies of the Lombardy region. The project aims at providing a technological platform for the early diagnosis of tumors that is innovative, low-cost yet very sensitive. Starting from a small drop of blood or urine and applying proprietary techniques developed by partners in the fields of spintronics, the project aims to realize a miniaturized lab-on-chip that can identify the genetic mutations which give rise to cancerous tumors.
