A REgionAl network for the development of rapid Diagnostic tools to address emerging epidemics and bio-emergencies. (READy)

The READy project is being carried on by a regional scientific network of excellence for the rapid response to bio-emergencies. The project is aimed at developing new bioreagents and diagnostic kits that target emerging tropical diseases, i.e., Chagas disease, arbovirus-related diseases (Dengue, Chikungunya, Zika), malaria and schistosomiasis. For this purpose, proteins must be isolated and purified from several microorganisms, such as Trypanosoma cruzi, Plasmodium SPP, Schistosoma SPP, Dengue, Chikungunya, e Zika. The unit at the University of Milano-Bicocca is at present carrying on the purification and characterization of proteins from Plasmodium (vivax and falciparum), i.e., MSP-1 and CSP, to be employed in immunological assays for the detection of antibodies in patients and blood products.
