Screening of inFlammation to enable personalized Medicine

Together we reach the next level of diagnostics

 

Millions of people in the European Union (EU) suffer from diseases associated with dysregulation of the complement system, which is a major component of the immune system

 

  • approximately 3,300 new cases of bacterial infections such as invasive meningococcal disease are diagnosed p.a. in infants and young children in the EU

  • about 200,000 young adults in Europe suffer from chronic inflammation of the kidney

  •  and 15 million elderly European residents are affected by limited vision due to age-related macular degeneration.

SciFiMed will

1) investigate the pathophysiology of the FH-protein family, to enable

2) the development of personalized, radically new on-time diagnostics, which allow

3) improved patient stratification for prospective cohort studies to

understand complement-associated diseases.

This multi-disciplinary project will combine fundamental immunological research with novel nanomaterial-based biosensor development translated into proof-of-principle diagnostics to revolutionize doctors’ ability to diagnose and treat severe inflammatory diseases plaguing millions of Europeans.
