NExT – Earlier diagnosis of endocrine pancreatic tumors

Since autumn 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT coordinates the BMBF-funded ERA-NET project "NExT" that aims to detect endocrine pancreatic tumors at an earlier stage and to improve therapies in cooperation with international research partners. The consortium is setting up a tissue bank, developing patient-specific cell-models and identifying corresponding biomarkers with the aid of a microfluidic chip system.
