Exploring new methods for cell death detection

There exist many methods to detect and quantify cell death. Most are based on the recognition of biochemical alterations of the cell or of the nucleus, activation of transduction signals or simply by the examination of the cell structure. However, these methods are expensive, time consuming, more or less sensitive and are often not suitable for very small quantities of biological material.

Our project aims to develop cost effective, fast, efficient and highly sensitive methods for detecting cell death.
