Tool to capture tumour cells circulating in blood.
This internship will be perfromed at Idris BV in Leiden.
Idris is a young company in the field of cancer diagnostics with the ambitious goal to replace the current biopsy. To do this they are developing a tool that will allow for in vivo capturing of hundreds of tumor cells that circulate in the blood. Use of this tool will be nearly pain-free, will be safe and will provide much more information than a regular biopsy. Because of that they will finally be able to solve the main problem of the regular biopsy: to do it often. With our tool we aim to make existing chemotherapies much more effective, as they are more correctly prescribed, as well as allow for the discovery of wholly new therapies.
