LUCIA workshop- “Understanding Lung Cancer”

According to the World Health Organization#lungcancer is the leading cause of #cancer-related deaths worldwide, accounting for the highest mortality rates among both men and woman. Lung cancer is also often diagnosed at advanced stages when treatment options are limited.

At the LUCIA EU Project, we are working to a better #understanding of lung cancer, to identify and analyse the #riskfactors and improve #earlydetection!

Do you want to know more? Thanks to our partners Vicomtech & Biocruces Bizkaia Instituto Investigación Sanitaria / Osasun Ikerketa Institutua, we are organising a #workshop entitled “Understanding Lung Cancer” to present LUCIA EU Project contributions!

When? 5 September 2023, from 9:00 to 15:00
Where? In San Sebastian, Spain, or on Vicomtech‘s Youtube channel!

You can register to the event here: https://lnkd.in/euB7e2Nm

We are looking forward to meet you, and to fight lung cancer together!

SNIFFPHONE is a Horizon 2020 EU project that has harnessed nanotechnology, (bio)chemistry, materials engineering, process engineering, biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, and medicine to develop and test miniaturized system that relies on artificially intelligent nanoarray for an inexpensive, fast-response, and non-invasive detection of disease via exhaled breath of gastric cancer.


Professor Hossam Haick received the prestigious Degree of Doctor of Philosophy, Honoris Causa, from University of Haifa

The honorary degree is being awarded In recognition of his groundbreaking achievements and significant contribution to the development of cutting-edge approaches to  non-invasive medical diagnosis of early-stage disease; for his extraordinary abilities to apply his research findings into advanced and efficient medical devices; for his continued investment in the education of a future generation of scientists through an understanding that the best investment is in promoting research and knowledge among young people; for his contribution and extensive community activities that support the integration of technology in the educational system, and for his work to advance higher education in Israel.

Prof. Haick has received the Advanced Alexander von Humboldt Research Award

The award is given to prominent researchers who have significantly influenced their fields of study, provided they maintain some type of cooperation with research institutes in Germany. It is granted in recognition of a researcher’s achievements as a whole – discoveries, theories, and insights.

Prof. Haick received the award for his tremendous contribution to the diagnosis of diseases through innovative markers that he discovered in his research at Technion. These are markers that are present in the breath and skin.


Professor Hossam Haick is included in GOOD Magazine’s 2016 “GOOD 100″

The list includes honorees from 37 countries and sorts them by six categories: health; earth; justice & equality; spaces; information; and stories. This recognition is in honors of the efforts of Prof. Haick to deliver non-invasive diagnostic tools that can contribute for better health being at affordable cost, both in the developed and developing countries.
