SNSF Eccellenza Grant for Pablo Sinues


Prof. Pablo Sinues of the University Children's Hospital Basel and the Department of Biomedical Engineering has attracted an Eccellenza Grant of the Swiss National Science Foundation.

SNSF Eccellenza Grants are aimed at researchers in all disciplines who have recently been appointed as tenure-track assistant professors at a Swiss higher education institution. They can apply for project funds of up to 1,500,000 Swiss francs for five years. Only 14 Eccellenza grants have been pledged.

Providing the right drug dose, at the right time, to the right patient is a paradigm for personalized medicine. The objective in this new project in the group of Botnar-Professor Pablo Sinues is to optimize the therapeutic regimen of pediatric patients to maximize efficacy and minimize side effects. This will be achieved by developing a mass spectrometry-based breath test. Ultimately, this will lead to new opportunities to guide the dosage of drugs with high accuracy, in real-time and in a patient-friendly fashion.

All the best for the project!
