AECC funds Bionanomechanics lab to advance nanotechnology based early cancer detection

Coinciding with World Day against Lung Cancer, the Spanish Association Against Cancer (AECC) cites in its press release the project, coordinated by Javier Tamayo and co-led by Priscila Kosaka, whose objective is the early detection of Lung cancer through a blood test with a much more sensitive technique than that currently used for the detection of tumor markers. This nanotechnology-based technique, applied to the at-risk population, could increase survival in this type of tumor since it would enable diagnosis at a stage where treatments are much more effective.

Newspapers and TV have echoed the news.

  • Living cells exhibit mechanical resonances

    The Bionanomechanics group has achieved a significant advance in the understanding of the mechanical properties of human cells: it has successfully demonstrated that living cells, specifically human breast epithelial cells, exhibit mechanical resonances, a phenomenon previously considered implausible due to the extraordinary viscosity and complexity of cells in physiological media. https://journals.aps.org/prxlife/accepted/75070K26Wa31f40a872881247617595fa407ee3d3 You can learn more…
