TAmiRNA receives FFG EARLY STAGE for the development of novel theranostic solutions based on microRNA biomarkers – the PATH project.
PATH stands for "Project for Advancing the Application of MicroRNAs as THeranostic Biomarkers". The aim of this project is to create optimal framework conditions for successful research and development of the application of microRNAs as theranostic biomarkers. “Theranostics” means the increasingly close integration of diagnostics and therapy. The aim of theranostics is to enable the right therapy for the right patient at the right time. A biomarker generally refers to a measurable indicator of a biological state or condition. MicroRNAs are a new class of biomarkers with enormous potential for applications in theranostics. They are short regulatory RNA molecules that are essential for the proper function of cells and tissues. The development of diseases is mostly due [...]
