Nanodiagnostics Area

This area is focused around the implementation of more efficient diagnostic and prognosis devices, both in vivo and in vitro, with the objective of optimizing the identification of diseases or predisposition to them, as well as it’s progression at a cellular or molecular level by using nanodevices.

 

The general research lines within this area are:

  • Development of devices and sensors based on nanotechnology for the detection and reliable measurement of the presence or concentration of one or more specific biomarkers and biomolecular interactions by measuring changes in response to thermal, electronic, magnetic, chemical or other stimuli.

  • Develop nanomaterials as nanometric markers and contrast agents for improved image-based diagnostic approaches.
  • The identification, evaluation and validation of new pathology-specific biomarkers
