New molecular markers

The aim of biomarker research is to discover and validate molecules with potential applications in the biomedical sector and in the food industry.

In the former, these can have potential for diagnosis, staging and therapeutic monitoring, as well as for characterising the mechanisms of action of drug candidates in drug development. In the latter, molecules that indicate nutritional quality in foods or the technological quality of raw materials are considered as biomarkers.

Biotechnologies open up countless possibilities for discovering molecular markers associated with changes in cellular functions, with various conditions in tissues and in different types of biological matrix, either of animal, vegetable or microbial origin.

Porto Conte Ricerche has a strong background in the discovery of new markers of interest for human and veterinary medicine, agri-food, and the nutrition and health sector. The research centre is experienced in developing methods for biomarker discovery by means of the cutting-edge technologies in the fields of proteomics, genomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics and imaging (MRI).
