Professor Peter Nejsum (evFOUNDRY personnel) receives million-funding for development of new treatment method.

Danish Professor Peter Nejsum (evFOUNDRY personnel) has received DKK 3 million (approximately USD 457,800) in funding for a project to develop a new method to diagnose and treat diseases. The aim is to discover new immunotherapies and diagnose cancer through blood tests. But first step on the journey goes to the local abattoir to collect a bucket of roundworm.

Processing large volumes of EV sources. First study supported by evFOUNDRY published on Cells.

Sara Busatto and Paolo Bergese (evFOUNDRY PI) co-authored with Joy Wolfram and colleagues from the Mayo Clinic and the Houston Methodist Research Institute a paper on the use of tangential flow filtration (TFF) for highly efficient concentration of nanosized EVs from large volumes of fluid. The study contributes to evFOUNDRY effort in exploring methods for robust massive separation of EVs based on size.
