Department of Molecular Biology

Project description

The assays will be developed for biomarker detection in blood, urine, cells and tissue. The training of researchers will be performed by a consortium consisting of 6 partners with biomedical, imaging and particle synthesis skills (4 groups, one institution, one technology company). This forms the basis for a very competent interdisciplinary training program with high quality in both education and research.
