Colon and Breast Cancer Diagnostics (COBRED)

COBRED aims at discovering colon cancer and breast cancer biomarkers for patient follow-up (monitoring markers) by exploiting the capacity of 3 state-of-the-art high-throughput technologies in an integrated systems biology approach. The goal is to identify biomarker candidates (metabolites, proteins, PBL derived mRNAs) capable to detect and assess the status of minimal residual disease, metastases and recurrence after surgery and chemotherapy. (See Goals).

COBRED is an EU FP6 funded 3-year Specific Targeted Research Project (STREP)
