RApID - Platform for rapid label-free imaging, identification and sorting of leukemia cells; TEAM-NET Project No. POIR.04.04.00-00-16ED/18, 36/2021
Prof. Czesław Radzewicz
The primary objective of the project is to develop the first Stimulated Raman Scattering (SRS) microscopic-microfluidic system for non-invasive imaging of live cells and apply it to rapid leukemia cell imaging, diagnostics, sorting and assessment of chemosensitivity in vitro. Multidisciplinary teams of experts establishing the consortium will characterize Raman spectra of leukemic cells and link them to biological features of the disease. These data will be thereafter used to design and construct, microfluidic-based diagnostic device utilizing SRS microscopy which will allow for quick and reliable differentiation between different types of leukemia cells providing clinicians with quantitative information crucial to make proper decisions during the course of the treatment. The envisaged microfluidic-SRS instrument will fill the gap in the current diagnostic methodology of leukemia, accelerate diagnostics and decrease its cost. Moreover the developed methodology will open new areas of application in leukemia research.
We are looking for a highly motivated technical staff with strong background in optics, non-linear optics and spectroscopy, ideally also with experience in non-linear Raman spectroscopy. The successful candidate will join a multinational and interdisciplinary team and will be responsible for aligning a setup for femtosecond stimulated Raman spectroscopy, preparation of samples and data analysis.
