 » makes the difference

  • OROBOROS INSTRUMENTS participates in two HORIZON 2020 funded Marie Skłodowska-Curie projects:
  • TRACTTraining in Cancer mechanisms and Therapeutics: TRACT will enable eleven PhD Fellows to complete research projects in the three critical areas: biomarker discovery, molecular resistance mechanisms and metabolic transformation mechanisms. This will allow for the discovery of novel insights into the molecular and cellular basis of oral and oesophageal cancer and generate new diagnostic tools and therapeutics that will improve patient response and survival.

  • Horizon 2020 COST Action CA15203 MITOEAGLE - official start 2016 Sep 12. More info?


492 O2k-Network Labs from all over the world joined for O2k high-resolution respirometry

» With Cuba, Israel, Mexico and Malaysia, the O2k is now applied in 47 countries.
