We are pleased to inform you that the European Commission has awarded a research grant to support the CLEAN project to be conducted by Serhat Tozburun, PhD.
The objective of the research project is to develop a novel endoscopic capsule design that provides local ablation to the superficial layer of target mucosa with sufficient depth to remove the abnormal tissue. However, the depth is shallow enough to avoid the residual effects of therapy within deeper tissue layers.
This 2-year research action is an interdisciplinary effort, including optical engineering, endoscopic device engineering, mechanical and material engineering, tissue mechanics, modelling, biology, and cancer. The CLEAN project will be carried out within the scope of Horizon 2020 MSCA Individual Fellowships Program.
