COCHISE biosensor ready to tackle cancer
An EU-funded research team has developed a biosensor that can identify immune system cells that actively suppress tumour growth. This biosensor can help patients use their immune systems to fight cancer. The COCHISE ('Cell-on-chip biosensor for detection of cell-to-cell interactions') project received EUR 1.74 million under the 'Information Society Technologies' (IST) Thematic area of the EU's Sixth Framework Programme (FP6).
