The aim of the program is to develop novel technology for monitoring cancer therapy through revealing the extracellular vesicle (EVs) identity. To that end, the project sets out to develop and validate novel technology platforms for detection and detailed molecular characterization of cancer-associated EVs. These platforms, in turn, would enable personalized medicine by efficiently monitoring disease development and therapeutic effectiveness, which will improve health care efficacy and reduce costs and, ultimately, improve the quality of life of patients. GenomeScan is leading Next Generation Sequencing efforts, performing both RNA and small RNA sequencing, thereby contributing to characterizing the molecular signature of cancer-related EVs.
