In order to improve the diagnosis of diseases, IK4-TEKNIKER has furthered research into a new piece of technology for the electrochemical detection of biomarkers relating to cancer and inflammatory disorders. It not only identifies the cells that display an over-expression of proteins linked to these disorders, it allows over-expressed proteins in the cell membrane to be immobilised and detected; this is an achievement that opens up the door to creating treatments adapted to the needs of each individual patient.
The DRIVE project, launched this June, will receive 8.9 million funding from the European Horizon 2020 program and will be developed by a consortium of fourteen partners from seven countries led by Dr. Garry Duffy, the Royal College of Surgeon in Ireland ( RCSI). The CIBER-BBN participates through NanoBioCel research group led by Dr. Jose Luis Pedraz at the University of the Basque Country / EHU, coordinator, in turn, of the U10-Formulation of Drugs of the Singular Scientific and Technological Infrastructure (ICTS) NANBIOSIS.
