Polish scientists have proposed an innovative method for the diagnosis of leukemia, thanks to which it will be possible to prevent the recurrence of the disease. For the development of their specialized diagnostic equipment, they have just received a grant of PLN 26 million under the TEAM-NET program of the Foundation for Polish Science.
The research work will be carried out by a consortium of five scientific units whose leader is the University of Warsaw. As a result of the project, a diagnostic device will be created for rapid, unmarked imaging, identification and sorting of leukemic cell subtypes.
Six multidisciplinary teams including oncologists, chemists and physicists from the Faculty of Physics at the University of Warsaw, the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, the Institute of Hematology and Transfusiology in Warsaw, Medical University in Lodz and the Faculty of Chemistry of the Jagiellonian University will be working on the new diagnostic method.
