Consortium

CRO - Aviano National Cancer Institute (Italy)

CRO is a Comprehensive Cancer Centre. This status, informally attributed by the OECI, the Organisation of European Cancer Institutes, has now been confirmed. For acquiring the designation of CCC, the institutes must prove to have a strong innovative predisposition as well as a multidisciplinary approach to clinical activities, basic and translational research, and whether such activities are directed to professional education and to the improvement in building organizational capabilities for providing high quality cancer care, including cancer rehabilitation competences.

EPFL - École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (Switzerland)

Situated on the shores of Lac Léman and overlooking French Alps, École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) is a research university that specialises in physical sciences and engineering. In the Supramolecular Nanomaterials and Interfaces  Laboratory led by Francesco Stellacci, we focus on the development of nanoparticles capable of selective drug metabolite binding. A precise understanding and control of the interactions involved will allow us to isolate and quantify drug metabolites rapidly and with lower cost.

VERMES - (Germany)

VERMES Microdispensing is dedicated to providing the best technologies and services to its customers around the world with the ultimate aim of contributing to increased throughput, improved quality and lower production costs.

Within the framework of the Diachemo project we support the development of the particular modules, so that they can be integrated accordingly. We define the respective specifications and requirements in close collaboration with all project partners. In addition, our task includes designing the electronic interfacing, the signal processing as well as the software control. We make sure that all parts fit together to integrate them in subsequent test samples. Using the feedback provided by our partners enables us to optimise these test samples in a way that the final prototypes can be built accordingly.
