The research position is part of a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network titled “ELBA: European Liquid Biopsies Academy - Towards widespread clinical application of blood-based diagnostic tools”, (

Liquid biopsies have been heralded as a game changer in cancer management, with blood tests offering a minimally invasive, safe, and sensitive alternative or complementary approach for tissue biopsies. Blood represents a rich source of information through which solid cancers (and their subtypes) can be detected, identified and classified, and matched to a specific therapy. For this reason, the implementation of liquid biopsy in the clinical process is our objective, to facilitate the access of this methodology to all our patients.
