PhD position, Urinary biomarkers in oncology - 2019BAPFGGWEF228Posted by: University of Antwerp
Posted date: 2019-Jul-04
Novosanis aspires to expand its expertise in molecular diagnostics within the oncology domain in collaboration with the Department Molecular Imaging –Pathology – Radiotherapy – Oncology (MIPRO) at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at the University of Anwerp. Urine is a non-invasive sample with a huge potential as a liquid biopsy. Cell-free DNA that originates from tumors can end up in the urine directly or after glomerular filtration and gives a dynamic picture of disease status, therapy response etc. To investigate how Colli-Pee can be optimally used for the collection of urine as liquid biopsy, Novosanis wants to obtain a Baekeland mandate.
As employee of Novosanis, you will become a specialist in the detection of biomarkers in urine from a medical device perspective. As Baekeland mandatory, you will obtain a PhD at the University of Antwerp.
What do we offer?
Diploma / degree
