Dr. Marinella Sandros

Dr. Marinella Sandros (JSNN) was awarded a grant by Friends for an Earlier Breast Cancer Test for the project “An Ultrasensitive Detection Platform for Breast Cancer Biomarkers present in Serum.” Breast-cancer specific protein biomarkers that have been identified to date don’t possess the requisite sensitivity/specificity to have utility individually as a biomarker for early detection but ultimately may have utility within a panel of protein biomarkers, the abstract states. “This proposal aims to develop a high-throughput, ultrasensitive, real-time detection platform for the analysis of BC-specific biomarkers in blood serum.”
