The scientific problem addressed with our project – ADDAX Biosciences – has been completely developed in the context of the University of Torino. Prof. Gianni Bussolati, full Professor of Pathology for over 40 years, focused his research for several years on the optimal fixation of tissues, with the goal of achieving optimal structural and molecular tissue preservation to allow the correct diagnostic and therapy of tumor pathologies. The idea and validation of the nontoxic fixative, proposed by ADDAX Biosciences, has been performed in collaboration with a team at the Department of Medical Sciences at the University of Torino and at the IRCCS Candiolo Cancer Institute.
The chemical and biotechnological development of the idea has been further expanded by Prof. Benedetta Bussolati at the Department of Molecular Biotechnology and Health Sciences of the University of Torino.
ADDAX Biosciences is an academic spin-off of the University of Torino.
