Research Seedbed in Biochemistry, Cancer and Radiobiology (SiBio)

Project: Research Project

Project Details


With this proposal it is expected to strengthen the cell culture work capacities of SiBio member students. Likewise, the direct measurement of DNA damage and the quantification of survival are expected to be standardized at Semillero as a strategy to evaluate the response of cell lines to ionizing radiation. It is also expected to propose a mathematical relationship that relates DNA damage to cell survival, and thus allows quantifying the radioresistance of each cell type.

Standardizing these two techniques in the seedbed will allow, in the short term, to provide elements for the determination of the effectiveness of the treatments proposed to control the pathologies studied in the seedbed, particularly radiotherapy. In this way, the work carried out by the seedbed may be extended to other types of samples, such as cell cultures derived from patient samples, which allow for the establishment of criteria for the evaluation of radioresistance with a view to the establishment of a more effective medicine.
personalized according to the particular characteristics of each patient.
