The research lines of ISOPROG team include:

a) The block of a molecular mechanism shared by 85% of a strong environmental component solid tumors for growth arrest and custom processing;

b) The development of an expert computer system for the prediction of the genome abnormalities predisposing to the onset of cancer and biomonitoring of the territory for high-risk environmental factors (in collaboration with the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences, University of Palermo).

The existing support opportunities include the following types:

  •  Sponsor for a two-year scholarship for career start researcher (35,000 euros / year): 70,000 EUR;
  • Sponsor for a two-year scholarship to a researcher with more than 5 years of training (45,000 euros / year): 90,000 EUR;
  • Sponsorship for a line of research with a total duration of two years: 150,000 euros.

The latter will cover the following costs over the duration of the search:

  • Cost of reagents and consumables;
  • Wage for 1 researcher + 1 technical support staff units;
  • Costs of publication of 2 scientific journals with international visibility and relevance.

The support of wages up to 2/3 of the research staff involved from 2018 will be based on external services provided by the laboratory.

  • Instrument platform of Cell Biology and Molecular Pathology (for research units c / or entity collaborating in Sicily): 275,000 Euros (**)
  • Instrument platform for genomic sequencing and bioinformatic analysis units: 1,250,000 Euros (**)
