Development of new and cost effective methods and tools for diagnosis of human pathogens

 

Project Budget 4,575,036 Euros

Infectious diseases continue to be a serious burden around the world, in both developing and industrialised countries.The present reality is that public health and medical communities are inadequately prepared. We must do more to improve our ability to prevent, detect, and control emerging, as well as recurring, microbial threats to health.

The main objective of DIAGNOSIS is to contribute to the above need by developing a novel easy to use, low cost mostly non invasive biotechnological platform for infectious diseases detection. The challenging aim is to reach a short and efficient sample treatment implemented into existing and newly developed portable PCR laboratory for multiplex fluorescent pathogen detection. The concept will be proven on human critical pathogens but will be applicable also for animals, and plants pathogens. The concept will be applicable for samples taken from affected organisms as well as from food/feed and environments (water, air, soil etc.) and has an articulate impact for the biodefense research.
