Decoding the human as well as many viral and bacterial genomes in 2003 has opened up new possibilities for diagnostics not only in medicine but also in agriculture and environmental protection. Concrete ideas for medical diagnostic procedures are born mainly from the deeper and deeper understanding of the molecular causes of diseases. This contributes significantly to the development of new, more sensitive, and often quicker methods of diagnosis. The disease of cancer can now be detected much earlier and therefore treated more successfully.

Diagnosis through the genes, the diagnostics has thus become an essential part of modern targeted therapies. This brings significant benefits not only to the patient, but also has potential for big savings in healthcare. This promises to have an immense future valuecreating potential with secure jobs.

Europe should take a leading role in the field of development of such innovative methods of diagnosis.

  • Project objectives - July 2013

    The aim of the partner schools in this project is to develop into competence centres in the field of innovative diagnostics. As project results, action-oriented teaching modules will be developed in cooperation with all schools.
    Students will be trained to become knowledgeable mentors in this field. In addition, they will acquire peer leadership skills. They will share their knowledge with the audience of participants as lecturers during experimental laboratory workshops that will serve (...)
